About the park

Bryce Canyon National Park is located in the south west of the state Utah. The park is named after the pioneer Ebenezer Bryce. He lived on the foot of the Bruce Canyon for 5 years in 1875. Since 1984 this park is officially a national park. The park is famous for his unique rock formations. These rocks can have a lot of different colors. They can be pink, orange or maybe red. The sun is the cause of this and that’s why the color can change.

A lot of people come to this park to make pictures. That’s not strange because of the clear sky and hight you can make magnificent  pictures of the sunset or sunrise.
