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.

And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Navajo/Queens Garden Loop, take some stellar pictures from Sunset Point, take in panoramic vistas at Bryce Point, and trek along Queen's Garden Trail.
