Bryce Canyon National Park contains a spectacularly beautiful series of "amphitheaters" filled with colorful, eroded rock forms. It cannot be adequately described in words and is only somewhat better represented with photos. It's a place where you can spend hours at any number of overlooks staring in wonder. You will undoubtedly find after a visit that you've taken many more pictures than you had thought in an attempt to capture its brilliance. A trip through southwest Utah must include a stop at Bryce Canyon.
Bryce has an easy scenic drive to great lookouts and a number of hiking trails down into the amphitheaters and among the "hoodoos" -- the name given the eroded rock pinnacles and spires that fill the park. Horseback trips are also available. In winter, cross-country skiers can enjoy the park on several ungroomed trails.
Bryce is located off Highway 12, about 14 miles east of Highway 89 in south central Utah. The nearest substantial town is Panguitch, about 23 miles northwest.
