Bryce is famous for its hoodoo formations, and I figured I should post at least one of that sort of thing! So here's my obligatory hoodoo shot. I liked this one because it looked sort of like an old city with castles and towers and whatnot.

Bryce is basically a mesa, or plateau, that is eroding away at the edges. The hoodoos are shorter the farther away from the edge of the plateau they are because they've been eroding longer. Eventually the entire plateau will be gone.

Check out the Wiki on Bryce HERE if you're interested in learning more.

There's a lot of detail here ... zoom is good.

the cool thing about these is that by the time they are gone, we will be VERY long gone. But for the moment, we will enjoy the beauty that is before us.

That was my first thought, urban development. Condominiums for the birds and lizards. A spectacular capture.

This is an outstanding, beautiful, rugged, formation. Nature creates her own art.

Bryce is also on my bucket list.... As you have gathered by now, I need two lifetimes to get to everything and a small country's finances to pay for it all!
Love your image Hun - it does look like an ancient city!

I'd like to walk around the bottom and take advantage of that unique when they get an elevator to the bottom and back up...we'll go back for those shots:)
