If you are planning a trip to Salt Lake City make sure that you take some time to visit Bryce Canyon National Park. Here you will find the largest collection hoodoos in the entire world. A hoodoo is an odd shaped pillar of rock that was left standing after the forces of erosion. You can see pictures of these structures online but a photograph simply does not do it justice.
A visit to Bryce Canyon National Park will offer every member of the family a memorable experience. There are many hiking trails to choose from and you can pick the perfect hiking trail by visiting the online hiking guide. Online, you will be able to take a virtual tour of this amazing park but as mentioned previously, a video or photograph will not be the same as a personal visit.
You can visit Bryce Canyon by car for a day trip or you can bring the whole family for an overnight stay. Bryce Canyon has two campground sites of which one is available during the winter. There is also lodging available at the Bryce Canyon Lodge during the summer months. In the winter, you can rent a hotel room at the Sunset Hotel.
Some of the amazing things that you can do when visiting this beautiful canyon is to enjoy the various Ranger programs available. You can go on a year-round moonlit guided hike, a seasonal telescope stargazing evening, or attend the interesting “Geology Talk” seminar that will tell you exactly how Bryce Canyon was formed.
There are activities for everyone including the children. Go to the visitor information desk and ask about the Junior Ranger Program. You can also experience the Bryce Canyon during the summertime on horseback. Therefore, the next time that you visit Salt Lake City make sure that you plan for a trip to this historical location.
