Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon National Park is a bit like a magical fairyland. The tall structures you see are called Hoodoos or Fairy Castles! Some canyons are created by rivers – Bryce Canyon is created by ice!

The way the rocks were formed, the softer rocks are on the bottom and the harder rocks are on the top. Bryce Canyon has freezing cold temperatures 200 times a year – and each time, the water in the cracks in the rock freeze and makes the crack bigger! The softer rocks erode faster than the harder rocks which is how they end up having big pieces of rock balancing on littler pieces. Some people say that the rocks look like different things. I don’t know – what do you think?
