Greetings from Bryce Canyon National Park

Time for a photo shoot with panoramic technique.


Bryce Canyon National Park

This popular park is most famous for its colorful hoodoos, and there are more of these artfully eroded spires here than anywhere else on Earth. The area is not actually a canyon, however, but a series of amphitheaters which feature remarkable rock formations and extensive forests dominated with conifers, including ancient bristlecone pines. Together with Zion and Grand Canyon National Parks, Bryce Canyon is part of a geologic wonder known as the Grand Staircase, an immense area of rock with layered sedimentary formations ranging from 600 million to 2,000 million years old.

State(s): Utah

Established: 1942

“I have always been a fan of the outdoors and I gotta say I really get excited at even the simplest of landscaping.”
