Bryce Canyon
Bryce Canyon, which is only about a 1hr and 30 min drive from Brian Head, is famous for its worldly unique geology. It consists of a series of horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters carved from the eastern edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau. The erosional force of frost-wedging and the dissolving power of rainwater have shaped the colorful limestone rock of the Claron Formation into bizarre shapes, including slot canyons, windows, fins, and spires called "hoodoos".
