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 24th (Wed), take in the dramatic scenery at Calf Creek Falls Recreation Area, then stop by Ruby's Inn Canyon Rock Shop, and then hike along Navajo/Queens Garden Loop. On your second day here, take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, hike along Navajo Loop Trail, and then take in breathtaking views at Sunset Point.
