Paria View at Bryce Canyon, Utah

A short distance from Bryce Point is the often-missed Paria View overlooking the Paria River watershed. The name means “water with elk.” The prominent feature is a giant hoodoo that resembles a medieval castle. Down below are numerous slot canyons formed by rushing water during the Ice Age. Unfortunately, there are no sanctioned hiking trails here. This west-facing valley is one of the few places at Bryce Canyon that is illuminated with color near sunset.
