A Carved Fantasyland you can find in Utah, USA
Ebenezer Bryce, the Mormon who settled on this peculiar land in 1874, gave the canyon its name and its reputation. He called it " a hell of a place to lose a cow!" He was here at the behest of the Mormon Church, up in Salt Lake City; the elders hoped to establish cotton plantations here and so, improbable as it sounds, dubbed the area Dixie Land. Bryce and the other pioneers found that it would take far more than a wishful name-change to turn bare rock into an oasis, and he gave it up after five years.. The name is actually a misnomer; there is no Bryce canyon— but there are small canyons, and hollows and passes and gaps, throughout the park. Bryce is not one big ravine with the river running through it. It is , however, a series of amphitheaters, natural stone bowls, carved into the edge of Utah ’s Plateau. From certain vantage points, the amphitheaters seem to be packed shoulder with concert-goers—the “red rocks standing like men” of the original Paiute. Indian name. These marvelous stone flutes and towers vary from delicate lavenders and pinks to bold reds and purples, and the hues shift almost from minute to minute as sun and clouds play across them.
