Bryce Canyon is famous for its hoodoos – gigantic towers of red rock all bunched together. Bryce has the largest concentration of hoodoos anywhere in the world. Standing on the edge of the amphitheater – the name given to the most dense part of the canyon – is one of the most visually stunning sites you’ll ever see. Bryce Canyon is a playful place. It’s textured and visually rich. It’s not imposing like the Grand Canyon. It doesn’t feel majestic like Zion. It invites you inside the formations to explore the canyon. You just HAVE to walk amongst those Hoodoos!
