A canyon where giant trees grow, in the United States

Inside of the Bryce Canyon National Park (Utah, United States) there is a path called “Wall Street”, an obvious reference to the giant skyscrapers of the Big Apple. But this time, the imposing heights are a natural work, both of the cliffs and of conifers that grow in an excessive way, seeking the light inside a narrow canyon. The trees are called ponderosa pinus and try to overcome the obstacle of light obstruction from cliffs up to 60 meters high.

The ride is part of the trail (Navajo Loop Trail), which begins at Sunset Point, and which is not open all year round due to the danger it poses, depending on the weather, from falling rocks from above. On the other hand, if the path is open, it can be followed along with another walk that is no less spectacular (this site could well appear on the list of landscapes in the United States that seem from another planet). It is called Jardines de la Reina (queen’s garden), and it is a path and sector of the park that can be joined with the passage through the canyon, to cross an undulating path between the curious formations known as hoodoos or fairy chimneys. The photos below are a selection of both scenery and the trail:
