Sunday Travel Photo #53: Bryce Canyon

Bryce Canyon.  Utah.  November 2014.


Canyon country is blessed to have Bryce Canyon National Park as its park and one of the United States National Parks. The park has a deep history since its formation. It was first named a national monument in 1923 before the congress could pass a bill to form Utah National Park. This meant that the land of the monument would become part of Utah National Park and the property of the United States. However, in 1924, the park regained its name and Bryce Canyon National Park became a national park in 1928.

    Such a gorgeous scene! Never really visited any place that looked so spectacular. I would think this place looks even better in person. Though I don't guess anyone can really get very close to those rock faces, considering the treacherous environment there.

  2. Is this place really here on Earth or in Mars or any of those planets. I so much feel like walking around those places.

    The red color is really amazing. I have never visited the Southwest. Is it very hot there all times of year or just summer time?

    Local Native American Paiute Indians tells of the Legend People who were transformed into stone by the trickster god Coyote. That could explain all the crazy shaped rocks there.

  5. The view of this place seem attractive,never visited such place before.That's why I like to know more info about this place.
