You can find hoodoos--rock pillars formed by erosion--all around the world, but those of Bryce Canyon National Park remain the standard bearers thanks to their bright red color, tall stature, and arrangement in large amphitheaters.
Kick off your visit on the 12th (Sun): look for all kinds of wild species at Bryce Amphitheatre, then trek along Rim Trail, then get great views at Inspiration Point, and finally trek along Navajo/Queens Garden Loop. Here are some ideas for day two: get great views at Fairyland Point, then explore the wealth of natural beauty at Under-the-Rim Trail, then get great views at Paria View, and finally take in the dramatic natural features at Three Wisemen.

Towering cliffs of red, white, and pink Navajo sandstone, stream-carved slot canyons, and big blue sky all characterize Zion National Park.
Get in touch with nature at Zion National Park and Temple of Sinawava Trail. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Riverside Walk and Kayenta Trail. There's lots more to do: head outdoors with The Subway, trek along Angel's Landing, and take a memorable drive along Kolob Terrace Road.
