United States Atlas > Travel Photos | Bryce Canyon
Bryce Canyon National Park is best known for its hoodoos. These
tall, narrow, irregular spires of sandstone rock are more plentiful here
than anywhere else in the world. This park is ideal for auto
touring; major overlooks are located just off Highways 12 and 63, the
main roads through the park. Sunrise, Sunset, Inspiration, and
Bryce Points overlook Bryce Amphitheater, an awe-inspiring expanse of
pink cliffs, castles, and hoodoos. At sunrise and sunset, the rock
is lit into explosive color by the changing light. For those who
want to get up close to the scenery, multiple hiking trails enable
visitors to descend into the amphitheater. A trail also loops
through Fairyland Canyon, a vast field of hoodoos. Fairyland Point
overlooks this canyon and Boat Mesa.
