As much as I LOVE living in the city, I often find myself day dreaming about open spaces out West. I’ve talked about this park before, but Bryce Canyon National Park truly captured my heart a few years ago. I’d never seen anything quite like this before. Hiking past the hoodoos was an experience I’ll never forget & I hope to get back out to Utah sometime soon.
•
I’m feeling the love for Bryce Canyon on this Monday morning so I’m gonna share a few fun facts:
🗺 Bryce Canyon National Monument was established on June 8, 1923.
👟 On June 7, 1924 the name was changed to Utah National Park. On Feb 25,1928 it was renamed to Bryce Canyon National Park.
🌲 Archeologists estimate that people have been in Bryce Canyon for 10,000 years. Due to the harsh conditions, historians don’t think people ever settled in the area. But, Native Americans likely hunted throughout the region that is now Bryce Canyon National Park.
📷 Bryce Canyon is actually not a Canyon. It is really a natural amphitheater.

  • Hoodoos are amazing structures and takes millions of years in the making. Little by little, each hoodoo has been slowly carved out, leaving only the rock structure standing where much more land once stood.
Erosion is responsible for the creation of hoodoos. This means that, rather than being the result of deposits or buildup over many years, they are actually the result of things being taken away. Every #hoodoo began as a larger land formation, like a plateau. As the years go by, this land formation is slowly chipped away. Rain, snow melt, and the wind all work on the land, taking away rock, silt, sand, and other debris slowly. The resulting formation is a tall spire with all the excess soft material washed away.

  • Wow. This was our first view of the Bryce Amphitheater from our visit in April. (I'm just now getting through these photos-blame the migrating birds that distracted me!) #traveltuesday #brycecanyon #brycecanyonnps_gov

  • I just fell in love with this tree on the very edge of @BryceCanyonNPS_gov. It looks erosion dead in the eye and says, steely cold and deadly calm, "Come at me, Bro." 🌲💪
