Bryce Canyon National Park, Ebenezer Bryce

Bryce Canyon National Park

Mormon settlers Ebenezer Bryce and his wife Mary Ann Bryce built a cabin within the canyons in southern Utah, near Zion Canyon. Eventually the Bryces moved to Arizona, and after their move the canyons, that they had lived in, became known as Bryce’s Canyon.

The Bryce Canyon National Park was established in 1925.

The Hoodoos section of the park consist of rocks that erode, after ice on the rocks break apart pieces of the rock after they melt. This process has created some of the tall rock structures within the park.
