USA - Bryce National Park, Utah

sunny 29 °C

A scenic drive east of Zion is Bryce Canyon. In contrast, Bryce is full of ‘Hoodos’ which are stone pillars shooting out of the ground, made from orange and white rock. These Hoodos were originally part of the seabed millions of years ago, and the soft sandstone has now been uplifted and eroded in a certain way, leaving the tentacle appearance. Watching the sunrise over Bryce Canyon really highlighted the orange and red colours, although it was a little bit of a struggle getting up especially with the hour time difference in Utah! We then hiked down into the canyon through the surreal landscape of Hoodos, which were great to see up close.
