Detailed Description

In the foreground are sandstone hoodoos and in the background is the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, which is managed by the Bureau of Land Management.

Bryce Canyon is a unique sandstone formation in southern Utah. It is home to a large number of hoodoos, which are oddly shaped pillars of rock that formed due to different erosion rates for the dolomite that caps them and the sandstone that forms their base.

Bryce Canyon is also home to large numbers of cedar trees that spread throughout the canyon.
