Hoodoos: Bryce Canyon National Park, September 2001 We got our first view of the hoodoos for which Bryce Canyon is famous at Yovimpa Point. “Hoodoos are tall thin spires of rock that protrude from the bottom of arid basins and badlands. They are composed of soft sedimentary rock, and are topped by a piece of harder, less easily-eroded stone that protects the column from the elements. In common usage, the difference between hoodoos and pinnacles or spires is that hoodoos have a variable thickness often described as having a ‘totem pole-shaped body.’” —from Wikipedia Wikipedia also has some information detailing how the hoodoos at Bryce were formed.
