Bryce Canyon

Bryce Canyon National Park is located in south Utah. It was settled by Mormon Pioneers in 1850 and it was named after Ebenezer Bryce.  The red, orange and white rock formations called also hoodoos, provide an amazing view for the visitors. Hoodoos are curved by ice and rain, when snow and ice melt and later freezes , it expands and pushes the rocks apart creating different formations.

Every year 1.5 million people visit Bryce canyon, hiking in the fantastic scenery. The park is open all year long and its located near Arches National Park , Zion Canyon, Canyonlands, and Grand Canyon.

Pictures were taken in 2008 while  visited Southwest Utah for the first time . Please enjoy them.
