Rainbow Point of Bryce Canyon

Detailed Description

View of Bryce Canyon National Park from Rainbow Point. In the foreground are sandstone hoodoos.

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.
