Bryce Canyon – Zion

Zion National Park is located in Southwestern Utah (78 miles from Bryce Canyon). Zion Canyon proper is 15 miles long and up to half a mile deep.   The park includes mountains, canyons, buttes, mesas, monoliths, rivers, slot canyons and natural arches. Bryce Canyon is famous for its unique geology, and consists of a series of horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters carved by the erosional force of frost-wedging and the dissolving power of rainwater. The result is bizarre shapes, slot canyons, windows, fins, and spires called “hoodoos”.  Images in this Portfolio were obtained in November of 2011.
