Bryce Canyon is another spectacular example of erosion of breathtaking beauty. Bryce Canyon National Park’s wilderness of phantom-like rock spires attracts more than a million visitors each year. Interesting fact: Water, ice, and gravity are the natural forces that formed the geological “hoodoos”. Bryce Canyon is a collection of humongous natural amphitheaters. In fact, the canyon is named after the Mormon pioneer Ebenezer Bryce, the Scottish homesteader. Bryce Canyon became a national park in 1928.
Most park visitors sightsee using the scenic drive, which provides access to 13 viewpoints over the amphitheaters. At dawn and dusk, mule deer and antelope graze the forested plateau along the road.
