Utah, one of the fifty states of America, is bordered by 6 other states and has 5 national parks within its borders. One popular national park in the said state is Bryce Canyon National Park, where tourists can observe voodoos, geological structures created by weathering and erosion; analyze hundreds of plant species, such as the antelope bitterbrush, Engelmann spruce, and manzanita; and watch animals, like the tiger salamander, short-horned lizard, and California condor.
Additionally, the name of this national park is a misnomer: in reality, Bryce Canyon isn’t even a canyon—it is merely a naturally-formed group of amphitheaters.
