Beautiful Bryce Canyon

I was in awe of the powers of wind and water this whole trip.

Looking over the rim of Bryce Canyon was like looking into another world.

The different areas are called amphitheaters.

The formations have names like chimneys and hoodoos.

Utah was formerly a desert (erg) on the equator.

I have had to go back and brush up on my geology.

The fractured layers of sandstone, limestone and mudstone are differentially eroded.

This leads to the hoodoo formation.

These processes continue today with freeze thaw cycles, rainwater and wind erosion.

Another beautiful example of nature’s art.
