Bryce Canyon, Navajo Loop Trail

Bryce Canyon's relatively high elevation results in a unique combination of rock formations and pine trees, such as the Ponderosa Pines growing in this slot canyon along the Navajo Loop Trail. The rim of the canyon has an elevation of 8,000 to 9,000 ft (2400 to 2700m).

Bryce Canyon is technically not a canyon, in that it was not formed by errosion from a central stream. It is a collection of amphitheaters, formed by rain and snow falling directly into the amphitheaters. - Martin van Hemert
