I understand why hoodoos are believed to be spirit people.
There are stories in the stones in Utah.
The stories change as the sun moves across the sky.
Light and shadows add to the details to form faces.
The hoodoos of Bryce Canyon
and towers and pinnacles in Arches National Park defy gravity.
Balanced Rock looked as though it could topple any second.
Some formations have names like the Three Gossips, Tower of Babel, Courthouse and The Organ.
Mr. Flower and I made up names for the many we noticed.
It was our “Game of Stones.”
Flow on the Go
Arches National Park is where my brain went into overload.
It was as though gravity had different rules out in the desert.
Erosion removes rock layers below and leaves arches hanging in the sky.
I even stood under some of these to get shots of them from below.
It’s like a magic trick.
The most dramatic ones have names like Delicate, Pothole and Tapestry.
Each has its own character.
We visited our favorite on our last day at Moab.
We spent a lot of time just hanging out under Double Arch.
It seemed like trick rings made from rock instead of metal.
Moab was mind boggling in many ways.
Stay tuned for more.
Flow on the Go.
