Bryce Canyon National Park

I’m ashamed to admit it, but I hadn’t heard of Bryce Canyon until a couple of years ago. It was one of the first locations we saved when planning our road trip though. The views from the canyon rim are incredible, and so different from the type of erosion and formations at Grand Canyon.  Technically, Bryce isn’t a canyon at all, but a collection of natural amphitheaters. After I learned that, I couldn’t help but picturing the hoodoos as people crowding in for a concert.

Even Lammy put on her hiking boots to hit the trails with us.
Grow where you’re planted.
Hello Mr. Hoodoo.
Cuteness scurrying around the trails.
This looks like a fantastical cathedral or castle straight out of LOTR.
A tunnel carved through a large fin on the Queen’s Garden trail.
Beautiful erosion.
Another misleading name: Natural Bridge is actually a natural arch. True bridges are formed from stream/river erosion, not weathering as this arch has been formed.
Don’t worry mom, we didn’t actually hike that trail in flip flops!

We loved Bryce Canyon. In fact, it was one of my favorite parks in Utah. We definitely recommend it, and would suggest spending a couple of days in the park to explore. We found a wonderful boondocking spot in the Dixie National Forest, just a few minutes from the park entrance. I’ll share photos of it in another post.
