Bryce Canyon National Park in southwestern Utah features a collection of giant natural amphitheaters along the eastern side of the Paunsaugunt Plateau. Bryce is famous for its hoodoos formed by frost weathering and stream erosion of the river and lake bed sedimentary rocks. The red, orange, and white colors of the rocks provide spectacular views for park visitors. Bryce sits at a much higher elevation than nearby Zion National Park. The rim at Bryce varies from 8,000 to 9,000 feet (2,400 to 2,700 m).
