National Park

Top National Park – Bryce Canyon
By Diane L Dilov-Schultheis

There is a national park that has some of the most spectacular rock formations found anywhere, spans over three distinct climatic areas, and is known as Bryce Canyon National Park. You will find thousands of colorful sandstone, mudstone, and limestone spires and pinnacles that have been created from erosion. They are known as “hoodoos” and are a true natural wonder to behold. Here you find a group of horseshoe shaped amphitheaters that seem to go on forever. The varying conditions create a massive diversity in scenery, birds, and mammals allowing you a glimpse into the wild!
