The existence of all life on Earth, including the Earth itself, is the result of processes that began many millenia ago, and will continue on for many more. Though we are surrounded in our everyday life with geological evidence of these processes, it doesn’t truly begin to sink in until one visits a place like Bryce Canyon National Park. Although the name suggests otherwise, this place is not actually a canyon, but rather a group of amphitheaters created by nature over millions of years. The park contains thousands of geological formations called hoodoos, spires of stone that remain after incessant erosion, spires that are still eroding away today. Visitors to Bryce Canyon National Park, located in southwestern Utah, have many options of exploration to choose from, including hiking, backpacking, or camping. Levels of difficulty vary here, as do the visitor seasons for certain areas of the park, but there is certainly more than enough for all to take in with the sights of the hoodoos alone. This footage is a great preview of what you can look forward to at Bryce Canyon National Park.
