I saw a photo of 'hoodoos', tall spires of limestone formed 40-60 million years ago. The sun, rising in the morning sky, appeared to be coming right through them and they were just beautiful. The picture is titled 'Could be Castles' and is by Don Ament. (not shown here due to copyrights)
I knew that one day I would travel to Utah to see Bryce Canyon National Park. The day finally arrived in June of 2010.
The Park is named for Ebenezer Bryce, one of the first Mormon settlers in the area. And Bryce Canyon is not actually a canyon at all. Bryce's formations were not carved by a source of moving water, such as a river. Instead, wind, rain, and ice carved the hoodoos from the sedimentary limestone.
Bryce is 1,000 feet higher in elevation than nearby Zion NP. At an elevation of 8300 feet, this was my view at Bryce Point:
Again, this is a park with hiking trails, though the day we were there was plenty warm. I figured between the heat and the altitude, slow walking was a better idea, and even that was taxing.
