Frozen Wilderness Photograph by Frans Lanting
Winter silence settles over Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah, but the rock's rich colors still shout for attention. At center stage, limestone pillars called hoodoos wait for an audience, but few visitors venture here in colder months, leaving this natural arena to mule deer, ravens, and foxes. According to the Paiute Indians, the pillars were once living creatures—until the god Coyote grew angry with them and turned them to stone.
