Bryce Canyon National Park, in Southwestern Utah, is famous for the largest collection of hoodoos—beautiful rock spires that cut through the sky—in the world.
Bryce Canyon is also home to horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters carved from the eastern edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau, scenic vistas, and the dark night sky. Visitors can expect spectacular hiking, camping, endless outdoor ranger activities, and even a Prairie Dog Festival.
Because the park transcends 2,000 feet of elevation, it exists in three distinct climatic zones: spruce or fir forest, Ponderosa Pine forest, and Pinyon Pine or 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.
