In our opinion, Cedar Breaks NM is a mini Bryce.
Cedar Breaks National Monument is a fairyland amphitheater of multi-colored limestone strata that spans some three miles, and is more than 2,000 feet deep. Due to minerals that have been deposited over time, the cliffs of Cedar Breaks NM display an amazing rainbow of warm hues. The rim of the Canyon is over 10,000 feet above sea level, and is forested with islands of Englishmann spruce, subalpine fir and aspen; separated by broad meadows of brilliant summertime wild flowers.
