Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon is a series of giant amphitheaters with millions of pink rock pinnacles called “hoodoos” that seem to glow at sunrise and sunset. These limestone formations in Bryce Canyon have been shaped and colored through erosion and oxidation of iron in the sediment. There’s no place in the world quite like Bryce Canyon National Park.

Zion National Park

Massive canyon walls ascend toward a brilliant blue sky. To experience Zion, you need to walk among the towering cliffs, or challenge your courage in a small narrow canyon. These unique sandstone cliffs range in color from cream, to pink, to red. They could be described as sand castles crowning desert canyons.
