Formed over millions of years by the effects of erosion caused by water, wind, carbonic acid, and frost wedging, hoodoos are tall spindle-like irregularly shaped rock formations protruding from the bottom of arid basins. Hoodoos do not maintain the same form from top to bottom and often look like faces, animals, or other familiar objects. Though rare, hoodoos can be found in various places throughout the world including Turkey, New Zealand, Italy, Canada, New Mexico, and Bryce Canyon in Utah where some of the best examples of hoodoo exist in the world. These strange geological wonders are also called “fairy chimneys”, “earth pyramids”, and “tent rocks” and are made of different types of sedimentary rock. Each rock type erodes at different rates which is what causes the undulating shapes of the hoodoos. One of the most distinctive features of hoodoos is that many are topped with boulders that perch precariously atop the soft columns. The hoodoos in this photograph were located along the base of the cliffs on the west side of Wahweap Creek near Big Water, Utah about 16 miles northwest of Lake Powell in Arizona.
