Bryce Canyon National Park Guide

Bryce National Park is home to hoodoos – natural stone pillars. Thousands of them cram into Bryce Amphitheater and more are scattered along the canyon. They create a bizarre, alien-like environment that is like nothing else you will ever see.

You can see them en masse from the rim or hike down among them and see these incredible formations up close. The unique environment puts this firmly on the list of the best national parks in the United States.
