Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah

Bryce Canyon is an absolutely unique national park. Hoodoos, stone pillars, can be seen on every continent, but this is actually the typical hoodoos terrain. Even pictures fail to do this area justice. When you see perhaps you'll make a much better name. In the mean time Bryce must suffice.

The rock hodoos of Bryce Canyon National Park are often compared to a geological
fairyland. This formation reminded me of an ancient temple of worship. The storm clouds made brilliant contrasting light on the day I was hiking near here.
Rock formations, dating from the late Mesozoic and Early Cenozoic periods include: Dakota, Tropic Shale, Straight Cliffs and Bryce's dominant and soft, calcareous Claron Formation. Claron is a colorful combination of pinks and oranges caused by trace amounts of iron oxide.
The hodoos are 60 million years in the making and Mother nature uses
rain, nightly freezes, and wind as carving tools. Its a truely spectacluar national park in the heart of Utah. Hers is another great shot click below:
