Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon National ParkWind and water have carved fantastic shapes into the Bryce Canyon National Park landscape: castles, towers, fins and a multitude of strange creatures. The result is a fairyland with unlimited opportunity for recreation. This is great country for hiking, horseback riding, photography, camping and other activities.

The area was named after an early settler, old Ebenezer Bryce. He saw the canyon in a different light and described its maze-like passages as a "Hell of a place to lose a cow."

Any way you look at it, Bryce Canyon is a great place to lose yourself for a day or two of adventure.

Bryce Canyon is actually an amphitheater cut into the side of a plateau. It is located at a high elevation, on the edge of beautiful forest. Roads follow the amphitheater rim and allow easy access to viewpoints and trailheads.

The infamous outlaw Butch Cassidy roamed these parts and one of his hideout cabins is located nearby. The area offers a definite Old-West flavor: cowboys and Indians, horseback rides, rodeos and chuck wagon dinners.

There is a visitor center just inside Bryce Canyon National Park. Lodging, restaurants, stores and other services can be found nearby.
