Lower Altitude Stops

September 21, 2016 Paul Groves

Just a little lower in elevation than Bryce Canyon was Fairyland Canyon. The hoodoos were more visible in the fog. Hoodoos are formed by erosion caused when water soaks into the sandstone, freezes, and expands (hydrogen bonding in action.)
Back in Red Canyon, below the clouds, we had a good photo op with Smokey Bear and then a short hike up Hoodoo Trail. The two little formations on top of the canyon are named “salt & pepper.”
