Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef Airplane Tour
Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef National Park
Bryce Canyon is an incredible scenic spectacle. The park is a vast showcase of colorful rock pinnacles and spires, known as “hoodoos,” which rise from a series of natural amphitheaters stretching across the Paunsaugunt Plateau. The view of these hoodoos, which are seemingly every shape and size, is breathtaking for all visitors, no matter if it is their first or 100th time in the park. Many formations bear fanciful names according to what they supposedly look like, including “The Poodle,” “Queen Victoria,” and perhaps the park’s most notable hoodoo, “Thor’s Hammer.” These hoodoos, combined with incredible visibility and surrounding spruce, pine, and fir forests, make for a truly picturesque atmosphere.
Capitol Reef National Park is a hidden treasure filled with cliffs, canyons, domes, and bridges in the Waterpocket Fold, a 65 million year-old geologic monocline (a wrinkle on the earth) extending almost 100 miles long and six miles wide. To see it from the air is truly astounding!
The Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument is named for the series of plateaus that descend from Bryce Canyon south toward the Grand Canyon, marked by vertical drops at the Pink Cliffs, Grey Cliffs, White Cliffs, Vermillion Cliffs, and Chocolate Cliffs. Among many other treasures, this area boasts a mixture of colorful sandstone cliffs soaring above narrow slot canyons, picturesque washes, seemingly endless slickrock, prehistoric village sites, and abandoned old Western movie sets.
