Hoodoos


Bryce Canyon in southern Utah is a spectacular place full of "hoodoos" as they are called.  A hoodoo is an odd shaped pillar of rock left standing after the forces of erosion.  There are hoodoos all over the world in different places but Bryce is by far the largest concentration of this land formation.  The Bryce Canyon web site describes the place as "hoodoo-iferous".

There are a couple of hikers on the trail down there to give the size of the hoodoos perspective. I have been to Bryce only once, about 30 years ago, camping with my boys and was unprepared for how cold it would be.

This is such a beautiful place.

I've learned something new here. Years ago I visited Bryce Canyon with my parents but don't remember much. And I've never heard of "hoodoos" before, so that was interesting. I wonder if a voodoo is one who is left standing after the forces of evolution have washed over him/her? ;)

Have always meant to see Bryce Canyon but never have done it. I think it's about time.

This reminds me of Cappadocia in Turkey.
