Bryce Canyon National Park

First designated as a national monument in 1919, Bryce later became a national park in l928. The park is situated in southeastern Utah at an elevation of 8,000-9,000 feet. Glen National Recreational Area is to the east, and Zion National Park to the west. Bryce is not a true canyon, but more like a combination of amphitheaters. The park offers breath-taking views of pinnacles, spires, natural arches, and no shortage of hoodoos. Sunrises and sunsets are spectular. Trails are well marked and maintained.
