Photographer's Note

Bryce Canyon has tens of thousands of Hoodoos of all shapes, colors, and sizes. A hard, dense dolomite (magnesium-reinforced limestone) cap protects the top of the column while hard and soft internal layers erode at different rates from wind and rain to form the spires. As the softer layers erode, the hoodoos eventually collapse. This shot was taken from Bryce Point. The concentration of hoodoos is sometimes called "the silent city."
