Zions National Park - With almost three million visitors each year, the Zion Canyon area is well equipped with all of the amenities, activities and entertainment options you need. In Zion Canyon, the rock walls tower 2,000 to 3,000 feet (620-930 m) above your car. Massive canyon walls ascend toward a brilliant blue sky. To experience Zion, you need to walk among the towering cliffs. These unique sandstone cliffs range in color from cream, to pink, to red. They could be described as sand castles crowning desert canyons.
Bryce Canyon National Park - Erosion has carved colorful Claron limestones into thousands of spires, fins, arches and mazes. Collectively called “hoodoos,” these unique formations are whimsically arranged and tinted with colors too numerous and subtle to name. Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah is named for just one of many canyons which form a series of horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters on the edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau in southern Utah.
Cedar Breaks National Park - Cedar Breaks National Monument contains a steep, bowl-shaped cliff face eroded into the west side of the Markagunt Plateau. The access road (UT 148) circles the cliff edge from which the spectacular limestone formations can be seen, extending 2,000 feet downwards and 3 miles across, all eroded from the Claron Formation of the Pink Cliffs – the highest and most geologically recent component of the great series of escarpments that stretches eastwards across south Utah, known as the Grand Staircase.
