Geological fact: Bryce Canyon isn’t actually a canyon.
It’s actually a natural amphitheater.

Bryce Canyon Snapshots by kenne
This beautiful land of hoodoos is best view at sunrise or sunset. 
Unfortunately
these images were taken around mid-day — still a beautiful National Park to visit.
Named after pioneer and cattleman Ebenezer Bryce, who once said of the canyon,
“One hell of a place to loose a cow.”

“Paiute Indian history says the colorful,
wildly-shaped hoodoos were ‘Legend People’ 
who were turned into stone by the trickster god Coyote.”

. . . and I thought the roadrunner was the trickster!

Goodbye,

Bryce Canyon

I’ll be leaving

you behind.

I’m going to

Zion and Sedona

where I hope to stay

to the rhythm

of a slow marcha —

remember the hoodoos,

remember the colors,

remember the winds.

Bryce Canyon is a rare dynamic, mesmerizing place that is truly poetry in stone. The climate that over time has weathered the cliffs and bulbous columns, called hoodoos that continue to evolve from freezing night and warm afternoons with summer thunderstorms dissolving the limestone creating a clay ooze that eroded the cliffs forming the hoodoos. Sometimes being slow is the best way of getting things done as new hoodoos are formed while others are reduced to lumps of clay. What once was an inland sea today provides one of natures wonderful sights.
