Snow in Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah

Photograph by Laura Zirino, National Geographic Your Shot

Low clouds linger in Utah’s Bryce Canyon National Park, a wilderness of phantom-like rock spires, or hoodoos, that attracts more than a million visitors a year. Bryce Canyon's colorful hoodoos are sculpted by snow over thousands of years. Freezing meltwater enlarges cracks to slowly create—and eventually destroy—the towering limestone pinnacles.
