Despite its name, Bryce Canyon is not a canyon at all, but an incredible range of natural stone amphitheaters. Its rippling red rock towers – called hoodoos – and limestone cliffs are otherworldly. Readers will tour the park’s beautiful landscapes and get an in-depth look at its many plants and animals. They will also learn about the park’s origins, when humans first came to the area, and much more. Features include engaging sidebars that highlight unique attractions; maps to show size, location and important features of each site; glossaries; eye-catching images; charts, diagrams and more.
