The Entire Navajo Loop And Queen’s Garden Trail In Utah Can Now Be Taken From Your Couch
The tall hoodoos that fill the amphitheater at Bryce Canyon National Park are both beautiful and intriguing. Ancient Paiute legend says that the hoodoos are people who were turned to stone for living “too heavily upon the land.” Geologists say that they were formed over thousands of years by frost wedging. Either way, it’s an incredible experience to see them up close.
One of the most popular hikes at the red-rock wonderland is the Navajo Loop/Queen’s Garden trail. It takes you right down into the midst of the hoodoos to see them up close, and it’s a fairly easy hike that many visitors enjoy. If you can’t visit right now, you can take this virtual hike right from your couch!
