From the National Park Service brochure: "At Bryce National Park erosion forms an array of fantastic shapes we know as hoodoos. Surrounded by the beauty of southern Utah, hoodoos cast their spell on all who visit." They definitely cast a spell on me. Bryce was my favorite park, for its sheer beauty. The hoodoos are like nothing I've ever seen, and the colors were mesmerizing. I truly felt like I was on another planet.
'Hoodoo' is such a funny word, and it became our call for the entire trip. When our group was separated we'd call out 'Hoodoo' into the distance, and get an echo back that let us know everyone was alright.
