I learned a fun vocabulary word this summer when we took a hike through Bryce Canyon: hoodoo. That’s what they call these bizarre spires of rocks that make up Bryce Canyon. As we trekked a three-mile trail, I felt like I was walking through a Tolkien book . . . or on another planet. We kept making up stories about dragons or other supernatural creatures that must come to life at night in these totem-pole-like rocks.
Look at the bottom right and note hikers making their way through these weird rock formations.
Hoodoos form strange sculptures that look as if they could topple over any minute.
Many of the hoodoos seemed to have faces.
It was hot.
Dramatic and eerie at times.
We hiked with just water bottle, a couple apples, some nuts, and a bad map. After an hour I was praying that the loop really did loop back.
Tunnels and caves at times.
Shea in the hoodoos.
One tunnel made the wind blow.
Tall hoodoos make you think of a higher power.
Hoodoos made us think of castles you make at the beach by dripping sand.
We made it back alive after hiking through all this!
One of my fav hoodoos: a head about to roll off.
