Bryce Canyon National Park - One of Utah's Most Incredible Natural Attractions

Located in southwestern Utah in the United States of America, Bryce Canyon National Park is an amazing landscape. The major feature of the park is the beautiful Bryce Canyon. It is a collection of giant natural amphitheater created by erosion over the years. The canyon is regarded as one of Utah's most incredible natural attractions. Bryce Canyon National Park is also known for its brightly colored spires and hoodoos.


Bryce Canyon National Park is distinctive because of the amazing geological structures called hoodoos. Some of these hoodoos are up to 200 feet high and were formed by wind, water, and ice erosion of the river and lake bed sedimentary. The red, orange, and white colors of the rocks provide spectacular views for park visitors.


Bryce Canyon National Park covers an area of about 145 square kilometers and lies at an elevation between 8,000 to 9,000 feet above sea level. It is much higher than the elevations of nearby Zion National Park and the Grand Canyon. Due to this higher elevation, Bryce Canyon National Park has a substantially different ecology and climate from the other two National Parks in Utah.


Bryce Canyon National Park is one of the most attractive national parks in the United States of America. However, the park receives relatively few visitors compared to Zion National Park and the Grand Canyon. This is largely due to the fact that the park is situated in a remote location.

Bryce Canyon is my third most favorite National Park in Utah. It is truly spectacular with some of the most impressive hoodoos in the world.
