Bryce Canyon Panoramic Picture

SKU: BC2
This panoramic photograph of Bryce Canyon was taken by James Blakeway and features a sunrise view of Bryce Amphitheater, one of Bryce Canyon National Park's most visited areas. Bryce Amphitheater is the largest amphitheater in the park. Trails along the rim and through the amphitheater allow for spectacular views for the more than 1.5 million visitors the park has each year. The pillars of rock throughout the amphitheater are called Hoodoos. Hoodoos are created by erosion that has shaped the colorful formations into what start as fins, and then further erode into pinnacles and spires.

Bryce Canyon Panoramic Pictures

Named after its original homesteader Ebenezer Bryce, Bryce Canyon became a U.S. National Monument in 1923 and a National Park in 1928. Covering nearly 56 square miles, this stunning natural beauty is popularly depicted in Bryce Canyon panoramic pictures, but receives few visitors due to its remote location in southwestern Utah.

The most commonly visited and photographed point in Bryce Canyon panoramas is Bryce Amphitheater, which is 12 miles long, 3 miles wide and 800 feet deep. While the area of Bryce Canyon has been inhabited for over 10,000 years, it was not until relatively recently that the first European explorers began to survey the area because of its remote location.

Bryce Canyon panoramas showcase a stunning example of headward erosion, causing the excavation of amphitheater-like structures in the National Park. Although not technically a canyon, Bryce Canyon pictures show many interesting rock formations, such as the colorful pinnacles called hoodoos that are as tall as 200 feet.

While Bryce Canyon National Park receives fewer visitors than Zion National Park or the Grand Canyon, its stunning beauty can be enjoyed in your home, office or den for years to come with these Bryce Canyon panoramas that capture all of its natural beauty.
