...Bryce Canyon Natl Park
Hoodoos are what they're called. Unique rock formations found only at Bryce Canyon National Park. They are formed over thousands of years by the same processes that form the features of Utah's other parks: water, ice and gravity. One of the factors that make the hoodoos unique to Bryce, however, is the type of rock that's there.
Bryce Canyon is layed out nicely so that it's easy to see everything rather orderly without being afraid of missing something. There's one main road and a couple of side roads. Each has overlook points that are named.
The above shot was taken at Inspiration Point.
The shots to the right and below were taken at Bryce's Black Birch Canyon.
The shots left, right and below right were taken at Agua Point.

Bryce is no exception to the endless number of hiking trails found in our national parks. Trailheads to and from Sunset Point seemed to be very popular.
At Bryce's Fairyland Canyon, a view of The Sinking Ship can be clearly seen.
