Bryce Canyon, Utah

Bryce Canyon, Utah, Nov. 1, 2012: Made up of giant natural amphitheaters along the eastern side of the Paunsaugunt Plateau, Bryce Canyon is known for its unique geological structures called hoodoos. These limestone rock formations are caused by the erosional force of frost-wedging and the dissolving power of rainwater. The person in the lower left of the first photo gives a bit of a sense of scale. Like most of the places we visited on the trip, I wish we could have spent more time here. The view was spectacular. The colors are insane. I would have loved to walk through the canyon and explore some more.
