Bryce Canyon National Park is a National Park located in southwestern Utah. Despite its name, it is not a canyon, but a collection of giant natural amphitheaters.

Bryce is distinctive due to geological structures called hoodoos.  A hoodoo is a tall, thin spire of rock that protrudes from the bottom of an arid drainage basin or badland.
