Photographer's Note

Hoodoo-a pillar of rock, usually of fantastic shape, left by erosion. Hoodoo-to cast a spell. At Bryce Canyon National Park erosion forms an array of fantastic shapes we call hoodoos. Surrounded by the beauty of southern Utah, hoodoos cast their spell on all who visit. Geologists say that 10 million years ago forces within the Earth created and then moved the massive blocks known as the Table Cliff and Paunsaugunt plateaus. Rock layers on Table Cliff now tower 2,000 feet above their corresponding layers on the Paunsaugunt. Ancient rivers carved the tops and exposed the edges of these blocks, removing some layers and sculpting formations in others.
