Bryce Canyon National Park is home to natural rock formations that have been around since the Cretaceous Period (some 140,000,000 years ago)! Once home to Native Americans, Bryce Canyon is now a national park that welcomes adventure seekers year round. Occupying almost 36,000 acres of land, the national park is a popular destination for locals and tourists who can enjoy hiking, camping, skiing and star gazing. The park has a 7.4 magnitude night sky, making it one of the darkest in North America, perfect for the amateur astronomer.
