You can find hoodoos--rock pillars formed by erosion--all around the world, but those of Bryce Canyon National Park remain the standard bearers thanks to their bright red color, tall stature, and arrangement in large amphitheaters.
Kick off your visit on the 15th (Tue): stroll through Mossy Cave Trail, get great views at Rainbow Point, and then don't miss a visit to Natural Bridge. Keep things going the next day: explore the striking landscape of Peek-A-Boo Loop.

For maps, reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Bryce Canyon National Park attractions planner.

Traveling by car from Zion National Park to Bryce Canyon National Park takes 3 hours. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 17th (Thu) to allow time for the car ride to Arches National Park.

Mother Nature kept reaching for red when she painted Arches National Park's 2,000 sandstone arches, resulting in one of the country's more distinctly shaped and colored landscapes.
Visiting Stand-Up Paddleboarding and Devils Garden Trailhead will get you outdoors. Discover out-of-the-way places like Balanced Rock Trail and Fiery Furnace. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Windows, trek along Landscape Arch, and make a trip to Partition Arch.
