Bryce Canyon is located in Bryce Canyon National Park, southwestern Utah. The Canyon is takes shape of an amphitheater, offering incredible panoramic views of nature’s wonders.
Bryce is distinctive due to geological structures called hoodoos, formed by wind, water, and ice erosion of the river and lake bed sedimentary rock. The red, orange, and white colors of the rocks provide spectacular scenery for the park visitors.
Most park visitors sight see using the scenic drive, which provides access to 13 viewpoints over the amphitheaters. Bryce Canyon has eight marked and maintained hiking trails that can be hiked in less than a day.
The park also has a 7.4 magnitude night sky, making it the one of the darkest in North America. Stargazers can therefore see 7,500 stars with the naked eye, while in most places fewer than 2,000 can be seen due to light pollution.
Park rangers host public stargazing events and evening programs on astronomy, nocturnal animals, and night sky protection.
