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 12th (Sun): identify plant and animal life at Bryce Amphitheatre, trek along Rim Trail, then get great views at Inspiration Point, and finally trek along Navajo/Queens Garden Loop. Keep things going the next day: get great views at Fairyland Point, then hike along Under-the-Rim Trail, then take some stellar pictures from Paria View, and finally take in the dramatic natural features at Three Wisemen.
