Bryce Canyon National Park is a place unlike other canyons of the southwest. Just the unique orange, red and white color of the earth in this region is a viewing delight, even before the distinct hoodoo rock formations come into focus. This part of the canyon opens up to the waking sunrise each morning, creating a cascading, bouncing light that illuminates the formations in an intense orange glow - even in the shaded areas. Despite its name, Bryce Canyon is not a canyon but a collection of giant natural amphitheaters lining the eastern face of a plateau. There is an abundance of look-outs and view points along the rim, and from below within the formations, an otherworldly hiking experience awaits. "Edge" was created just a few minutes after the sun soaked the hoodoos and canyon walls.
