Bryce Canyon

Utah's Bryce Canyon is known for its spectacularly colorful landscape and its geological structures that resemble miniature cities, cathedrals, and spires. These structures, known as "hoodoos," were formed when water, frost, and wind acted on alternate strata of soft and hard limestone, creating colorful and unique forms. The canyon region was settled by Mormon pioneers in the 1850s and was named for Ebenezer Bryce, who homesteaded in the area. How is Bryce said to have described the canyon? More...

Absolutely wonderful! I'm with Turtle, I want to take a trail ride through. As an Aussie, the only time I get to see geography like this is in a Roadrunner & Coyote cartoon. It's hard to believe it's real!

Bryce grazed his cattle inside what are now park borders, and reputedly thought that the amphitheaters were a "helluva place to lose a cow."[3] He also built a road to the plateau to retrieve firewood and timber, and a canal to irrigate his crops and water his animals. Other settlers soon started to call the unusual place "Bryce's canyon", which was later formalized into Bryce Canyon.

I wonder what the original Indian though about place. probably in line of "better not lose my colt in there."

Tis another of the very beautiful areas of the American south west. Personally though, I prefer "my" Superstition Mountain range, located in the southeastern Arizona area.
