Bryce Canyon

Utah’s smallest national park, Bryce packs the most visual punch with orange sets of otherworldly rock formations in high-mountain desert. No other place in Utah compares in awe to the breathtaking amphitheater of Bryce Canyon.


I stood frozen for long minutes on the rim, beholding this spectacular view before descending between the fluted walls and sculptured apexes into the sculpture gardens of a giant sand castle.


Filled with peculiar hoodoos Bryce’s jagged landscape was carved by water over millions of years. Water continues to split rock as it freezes and expands over 200 times a year. Etching into the soft limestone and conduits of the canyon, it constantly changes the view of the rim, cutting it back in spectacular natural erosion, creating the wild magic of phantom rock spires and hoodoos. Under the bright blue sky, sprinkles of light illuminate the canyon, radiating through the intensely pigmented walls of orange limestone.
