Miracle of Nature - Hoodoos in Queen's Garden - Bryce Canyon, Utah, USA

Newer Older

The Queen's Garden is located in Bryce Canyon National Park in the southwest of Utah, USA. Although it is named Canyon, it is actually a natural amphitheatre. It is characterized by unique geological structures, the Hoodoos, which were formed by wind, water and ice. The National Park is located at an altitude from 2,400 to 2,700 meters and thus significantly higher than the nearby Zion National Park or the Grand Canyon National Park.
Around 1850, the NP populated by white settlers. The Bryce Canyon received it's name from Ebenezer Bryce, who established there around 1875.
1924 the Bryce Canyon was declared a National Monument and in 1928 a national park. The park attracts annually by 800.000 to 1.000.000 visitors to "explore" en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bryce_Canyon .

Das Naturwunder - Hoodoos im Queen's Garden

Der Queen's Garden befindet sich im Bryce Canyon Nationalpark im Südwesten von Utah, USA. Obwohl er Canyon heißt, stellt er sich eigentlich mehr als ein natürliches Amphitheater dar. Dieses zeichnet sich aus durch einzigartige geologische Strukturen, die Hoodoos. Sie werden durch Wind, Wasser und Eis aus den Sedimenten geformt.
Der Nationalpark liegt in einer Höhe von 2.400 bis 2.700 Meter und somit wesentlich höher als der nahe gelegene Zion Nationalpark oder der Grand Canyon Nationalpark.
Der NP wurde um 1850 von weißen Siedler besiedelt. Seinen Namen erhielt er von Ebenezer Bryce, der sich um 1875 dort niederließ.
1924 wurde der Bryce Canyon zum National Monument und 1928 zum National Park erklärt. Der Park wird jährlich von 800.000 bis 1.000.000 Besuchern "erforscht". (Quelle:de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bryce_Canyon)
