Cedar Breaks National Park Panoramic Picture

SKU: CB1
This panoramic photograph of Cedar Breaks National Monument was taken by James Blakeway and features a late day view of the Cedar Breaks amphitheater. This geologic spectacle is the result of uplift and erosion that created an expanse of cliffs, canyons, columns, and spires that is more than 2,000 feet deep and more than three miles in diameter. From what was once an ancient lake bed located near sea level, these geologic forces are creating the beautiful landscapes of Cedar Breaks and nearby Bryce Canyon National Park. At the right is a 1,700 year-old bristlecone pine tree, which is native to the area's high country, where water is scarce, winds high and soil thin.

Cedar Breaks Panoramic Pictures

Located near Cedar City, Utah, Cedar Breaks National Monument panoramic pictures showcase one of the most beautiful natural amphitheaters in the U.S., stretching over three miles in diameter. The setting captured in Cedar Breaks panoramas holds many geological extremes, with the monument's rim over 10,000 feet above sea level and with depths of over 2,000 feet.

Similar in appearance to pictures of Bryce Canyon National Park, Cedar Breaks National Monument's many canyons, cliffs and hoodoos draw several hundred thousand tourists annually. While water is scarce in the harsh environment of the region, many Cedar Breaks pictures feature inspiring wildlife such as 1,700 year old bristlecone pine trees.

Formed over a period of 60 million years, the impressive geological features seen in Cedar Breaks panoramic pictures were formed through natural erosion over what was once an ancient lake bed at sea level. These inspiring images of Cedar Breaks are a colorful wonder to behold, and make it easy to see why this U.S. National Monument draws so many curious visitors each year.
