COME CELEBRATE BRYCE CANYON'S 2nd ANNUAL GEOLOGY FESTIVAL
On July 28‐30, 2011, Bryce Canyon National Park will be celebrating its most stunning resource, the geology. Known for its colorful and oddly shaped rock spires called “hoodoos,” the area was established as a national park in 1928. Each year over a million visitors from all over the world come to the park to marvel at its beautiful scenery and delicate formations, unique on planet earth. (Hoodoo is pronounced with a "haunting" tone and the "h" is silent - ooooo-dewww)
The Geology Festival will offer daily ranger‐guided walks and talks in the canyon and on the rim, children’s activities on geology, guided bus tours through the park, illustrated programs, geology and fossil tables and an exhibit of “Hoodoos Around the World.”
