Of all Utah’s State/National Parks, Bryce Canyon is my choice for the most colorful. The cliffs of Bryce range in color from white to red with varying hues of pink, coral, orange, salmon, and even purple. Directional morning and evening sunlight filter through the pinnacled and tree-lined amphitheaters causing formations to magically glow.

Bryce Canyon is famous for its unique geology of red rock spires, horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters, and grotesque, eerie and often whimsical hoodoos. Millions of years of wind, water and geologic mayhem have shaped and etched the pink cliffs at Bryce, which isn't actually a canyon but the eastern slope of the Paunsaguant Plateau. The arid appearance belie the fact that this area receives plenty of moisture, four feet of snow is common in winter, and sudden thunder storms create the dangers of flash-floods in Spring and Fall. Bryce Canyon is more kin to mountains than desert, it sits at a elevation of 8000 compared to the 300-500 ft elevations of East Texas.

This should be on everyone’s “Must See” places to visit.
