Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah

We are now at Bryce Canyon National Park. Bryce Canyon is best known for the beautiful and bizarre rock spires called “hoodoos.”
The Hoodoo pinnacles and odd-shaped rocks were left standing by the forces of erosion. This photo was taken at Sunset Point. “Thor’s hammer” at Sunset Point…. one of the more popular hoodoos

Pinyon pine and juniper grow among the hoodoos at low elevations, ponderosa pine forests dominate the plateau top, and spruce, fir and aspen thrive at the highest elevations.
