Bryce Canyon National Park is perhaps the one region of the Southwest most associated with hoodoos. The park contains a 20 mile section of the Pink Cliffs, one of the components of the Grand Staircase in south Utah, which has been eroded to form a great band of pinnacles, up to 2 miles wide in some places, viewed from many roadside overlooks or along a dozen trails. Although all are composed of the same rock (the Claron Formation), the hoodoos do have a good range of colors: white, and shades of orange, pink and yellow. Elevations are high, over 9,000 feet at the south end of the scenic drive, though the park stays open all year.
