Overview

A smaller version of Bryce Canyon, this 2,500-foot deep basin filled with strange limestone formations in a vivid array of colors and hues offers breathtaking views on a five-mile drive along the rim. This naturally formed amphitheater has guided walks in the summer and a few designated hiking trails.

Looks like a great monument but we only got to see the North View because Hwy 148 was still closed by the snow. What we did see was beautiful. Next year maybe.
