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.
On the 16th (Mon), look for gifts at Ruby's Inn Canyon Rock Shop, explore the stunning scenery at Sunset Point, then tour the pleasant surroundings at Navajo Loop Trail, and finally hike along Navajo/Queens Garden Loop. Here are some ideas for day two: explore the striking landscape of Peek-A-Boo Loop.
