National Parks of the West
The Built Environment
"I tell you, if they were silent, the very stones would cry out." Luke 19:40
Thor's Hammer. In the land of hoodoos, each day brings changing light and color to the landscape. Human history abounds from American Indians, Mormon Pioneers to the Civilian Conservation Corps. Today, the compact 35,000 acre park receives over 2.6 million visitors a year. Many historic structures dot the landscape, including the famous Bryce Canyon Lodge.
