America’s 10 Best National Parks You Should Visit

9. Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah

Established as a national park way back in 1928, Bryce Canyon has been among the most amazing national parks in America ever since. Its home is in southwestern Utah and it was named after Ebenezer Bryce, a Mormon pioneer. What makes this national park so interesting are its peculiar rock formations.

Namely, carved from the eastern edge of the Paunsagunt Plateau in Utah’s southern region, it’s actually a series of horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters. Furthermore, colorful Claron mudstones, sandstones and limestones were carved by erosion into thousands of mazes, pinnacles, fins and spires. Other unique erosional formations, called “hoodoos,” also dot the park and add to its overall mysteriousness with their variety of subtly tinted colors. Hence – Bryce Canyon National Park is heaps of fun to explore!
