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.
Get out of town with these interesting Bryce Canyon National Park side-trips: Marble Canyon (Vermillion Cliffs Scenic Highway & Northern Arizona Guide Service) and Coyote Buttes (in Big Water). Spend the 25th (Wed) exploring nature at Peek-A-Boo Loop. Spend the 28th (Sat) exploring nature at Fairyland Loop Trail. And it doesn't end there: stroll through Navajo/Queens Garden Loop, trek along Queen's Garden Trail, take in the dramatic natural features at Wall Street, and take in breathtaking views at Sunset Point.
