Not far from Zion is Bryce Canyon National Park, one of the most interesting and unique landscapes my kids and I have ever seen. As we hiked into the park, for a moment it seemed like staring out at another planet with a million rock spires right out of a science fiction movie.
The unique shapes at Bryce are caused by natural erosion, so over time, the water and wind have washed and blown away layers of rock and what’s left are these neat spires that the locals nicknamed hoodoos. The kids were absolutely awestruck looking out at the sheer number of them. It was pretty cold in April when we went. In fact, we even had a few snow flurries. This was one of those times our jackets definitely came in handy. Another DO NOT MISS!
