Utah's Bryce Canyon Area Tour Information

Famous for its brilliantly colored and magnificantly shaped spires known as "hoodoos," Bryce Canyon has been a world renowned destination since its inception as a National Park in 1928. Located along the eastern edge of the Pansaugunt Plateau, Bryce is actually a natural ampitheater and not a canyon. This is due to the fact that it was formed from headward erosion and not by a main channel of water. Iron oxide and manganese deposits from this erosion are responsible for the brilliant pink color of Bryce Canyon. This process created what we see today: amazing natural bridges, arches walls, windows and hoodoos reaching up to 200 feet high within a series of giant natural ampitheaters. Bryce Canyon is the largest of these, containing one of the highest concentrations of hoodoos of any place on Earth.
