1.      Clear Open Views

In the day, you’ll be able to take advantage of views that provide as much as 100 miles of visibility – but it isn’t just the daytime that offers spectacular views. There are many programs that you can take advantage of at Bryce Canyon and stargazing is just one of them. If you get lucky enough to visit Bryce Canyon in the evening, you will see more than 7,500 stars in the night sky – that’s three times as much as most other states in the U.S.  

2.      Plenty of Things to See

Not only will the 100-mile visibility on a cloudless day give you the chance to see as far as New Mexico and Arizona, but there are many rock formations and environments you’ll get close to. There are three different climates in Bryce Canyon purely because the elevation of the park can vary a lot, and you’ll also be fascinated with the vegetation that grows during the sizzling summer.

3.      Great Trails to Hike

If you want to mix things up you’ll love what Bryce Canyon has on offer as it has a listed 15 hikes for you to take advantage of. There are easy and short hikes but there are also hikes that take plenty of time and patience so you’ll find a hike that suits your ability with ease.

4.      It’s a Four-Season Area

We all know the Utah desert is a smoking hot place in the burning sun, but it’s a four-season location and often attracts 200 inches of snow throughout the year. The summer time offers you the perfect hiking opportunity, but exploring Bryce Canyon in the snow and ice is special thanks to the blanket of snow that sits right on top of the hoodoos, which gives each one a focal point.

5.      The Hoodoo Experience

Thanks to natural erosion from forces like wind, ice, and gravity, the hoodoo rocks looking as infamous as ever. The red and orange rocks are what make Bryce Canyon truly special and it’s one of the main reasons why it gets so many visitors every year. It’s time to get photogenic at Bryce Canyon in 2017 as you can be certain you’re going to capture many great photos with the hoodoos standing right behind you.

There are four other national parks in the Utah state, but it’s Bryce Canyon that’s going to stand out in 2017 thanks to the many experiences on offer. If you like walking in the hot sun and exploring new routes, Bryce Canyon is the place to visit this year.
