The Amazing Wahweap Hoodoos


From Friday’s 10 mile trek up Wahweap Wash in Southern Utah. We explored this carnival of anomalies and timeless products of erosion and produced these images.

It’s part of the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, a landscape that Trump wants to reduce in size by about 50%.  Environmental groups such as SUWA, Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance,  https://suwa.org/     are fighting this madness.  Can’t imagine oil and gas wells populating this land.

 

The distinctive sandstone rock formations know as the Wahweap Hoodoos stand out in the Southern Utah landscape.

  4. Oh, how I wanted to go here, but the hike was just a tad too much for us. We did visit the Toadstools, Alstrom Point, and enjoyed photographing the mushroom hoodoos at Stud Horse Point. Love this part of the country. The landscape never ceases to amaze and perplex.

  10. Wow! Crazy, gorgeous landscape. I’ve heard of Grand Staircase Escalante but had no idea that it contains these amazing geological treasures. Shameful that this would not be protected.
