Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon National Park, located in Southwestern Utah, is famous for its beautiful rock spires called “hoodoos,” horseshoe-shaped amphitheatres carved from the eastern edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau, scenic vistas and the dark night sky.

Because the park transcends 2000 feet of elevation, it exists in three distinct climatic zones: spruce/fir forest, Ponderosa Pine forest, and Pinyon Pine/juniper forest. This diversity of habitat provides for high biodiversity including more than 100 species of birds, dozens of mammals, and more than a thousand plant species.
