Bryce Canyon, famous for its worldly unique geology, consists of a series of horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters carved from the eastern edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau. The erosional force of frost-wedging and the dissolving power of rainwater have shaped the colorful limestone rock of the Claron Formation into bizarre shapes, including slot canyons, windows, fins, and spires called “hoodoos”.
Red Cliff was founded in 1879, its name derived from the red quartzite cliffs surrounding it. The town was tthe first white community in the Eagle Valley, and served temporarily as the first county seat of Eagle County (formed out of Summit County in 1883) until the relocation of the county seat to Eagle in 1921.
Hite City Remains of a “boom town” lie in the lake below
you. The small town – once a miners’ haven –
bears the name of the early settler Cass hite, who
first found gold here in 1883.
Following World War II, the population of Hite
City increased to more than 200 people. Instead of searching for gold, residents swept the area for uranium. Locals said the miners had “uranium on the cranium” as prospectors searched for “hot” rocks or ore.
Like all mining booms in the West, this one, too, eventually dwindled, returning Hite to its small-town existence. Finally in 1964, the rising waters of Lake Powell engulfed Hite, ending forever what dreams of prosperity had begun.
