I hate to break it to you, but Bryce Canyon isn't technically a canyon. Oh well. It's still pretty cool and a nice day-trip from Zion National Park in Utah. It will take you under 2 hours to get to Bryce nearby Zion. There's great trails here and you'll quickly be exploring the hoodoos (rock pillars) and the natural rock features of the park. Where a lot of Zion trails start at the bottom and go up, Bryce's trails start at the top and head down into one of many natural rock amphitheaters. Bring some warm clothes - we visited in April and there was snow on the plateau!
