Once you’re done with Thanksgiving leftovers, try getting out and exploring. We recommend a morning hike at Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. Earlier in November, photographer Claire Codling captured this gorgeous moment. “The sun rose slowly over Thor’s Hammer, turning the hoodoos a glowing orange and red. The early morning mist and golden sky gave a real magical feel to the morning.” Photo courtesy of Claire Codling.
You can visit Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah a hundred times and still find something new and interesting. This mysterious landscape of hoodoos and twisting trails glows orange in the light while the shadows stretch out like reaching fingers. Looking at these delicate carvings, it’s difficult to believe that all this was done by wind, water and time, and one day, the same forces that created it will wipe it all away.

The striking contrast of white snow and red rocks make Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah even more beautiful. But make sure to plan ahead if you’re going to explore the snowy splendor here. Not all trails and roads are cleared, so waterproof hiking boots, snow boots or snowshoes are essential if you plan to hike. We also recommend hot cocoa.
