For my second trip to the Tucson, AZ rock and gem show I chose to drive, it was a trip I took alone and what a memorable experience it was.
One reason for my decision was that I could take in the absolutely stunning and beautifully diverse earth-scape along the way. Certainly the most awesome and bizarre geological formation was in Utah. Bryce Canyon.
My words and these professional photographs really cannot do it justice. You have to see it to believe it.
You can hike for hours, even get lost in that vast, Mars-esque landscape. Massive Hoodoos everywhere, giant columns of rock, silent sentinels, simply the leftovers of erosion, they are jaw dropping.
Bryce Canyon National Park, is a sprawling reserve in southern Utah, and is known for crimson-colored hoodoos, which are spire-shaped rock formations. The park’s main road leads past the expansive Bryce Amphitheater, a hoodoo-filled depression lying below the Rim Trail hiking path. It has overlooks at Sunrise Point, Sunset Point, Inspiration Point and Bryce Point. For the best views attend at sunup or sundown.

Why is Bryce Canyon not really a canyon?
In conclusion, do something different! So many people have told me that they’ve always wanted to visit this park – Just do it! You won’t ever forget it.
