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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Peek-A-Boo Loop and Queen's Garden Trail. Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Bryce Amphitheatre, enjoy breathtaking views from Bryce Point, hike along Rim Trail, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Sunset Point.
