Bryce Canyon NP (3)

View the series of Bryce Canyon, or Slideshow. It also belongs to my National Parks set, view the Slideshow here. Yes, the red limestone color in Bryce and many places of Utah is so dominant. I am just curious about what I would see and feel if Bryce is in Monochrome.. and I found myself being attracted to her the other side of beauty too. Of course, red is the accent color of her... Her original portraits ... coming soon.


Bryce Canyon NP is one of my favorite geobeauties on earth. (Mono Lake is another one.) It is the uniqueness of the rocks that caused Bryce Canyon to be designated as a national park. These famous spires, called "hoodoos," are formed when ice and rainwater wear away the weak limestone that makes up the Claron Formation. However, the hoodoos' geologic story is also closely tied to the rest of the Grand Staircase region and the Cedar and Black Mountains volcanic complex.
