Bryce canyon is located in Utah
It is located in south western Utah
Named after the Mormon pioneer Ebenezer Bryce, bryce canyon became a national park in 1928.
In Bryce, hiking can be breathtaking, both literally and figuratively. Treks of varying distances transport you into veritable sculpture gardens full of eerie hoodoo. After a day of exertion, gaze at the 7,500 stars visible in the night sky (an urban dweller is likely to see only about 200 at home) at one of the park's regular Night Sky programs.
Bryce Canyon, located at an elevation of 8000 to 9000 feet, is home to some interesting landscapes. The most unique features are the tightly packed stone pillars that jut up from the floor of a huge natural amphitheater. The orange colored rocks glow in the sun, contrasting beautifully with the green trees. Due to the high elevation the area is cooler and receives snowfall during the winter months and into spring. The best time to visit it is from April to October.
The Alton coal company is proposing to strip-mine thousands of acres of public land right outside Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah, which attracts nearly two million visitors each year.
Bryce Canyon National Park is famous for its hoodoos. These are tall rock protruding from the ground, often formed in dry and hot regions from sedimentary and volcanic rock. These hoodoos make up the amphitheaters. The largest collection of hoodoos in the world is found in Bryce Canyon National Park.
