The Hoodoos – A story in 47 words: LAPC & WWP

Walking among the hoodoos in the morning light, feeling out of my element.

Hoodoos at Bryce Canyon

Sculpted towers surround me, casting tall shadows. Their wind-carved faces turn towards the sun,

Close up at Bryce Canyon

until clouds block their view.

Clouds over Bryce Canyon National Park

Shadows lengthen, darkness threatens me.

Hoodoos at Bryce

Snowdrifts create luminous lights.

Snow at Bryce Canyon

Hoodoos retreat, marching towards another day.

    • Thanks, Jane! I took those photos in Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah. My favorite National Park there.

      • Utah… of course! There are amazing landscapes there. We haven’t been to Bryce yet. I couldn’t place your photos in our equally amazing state!!

  1. Well Siobhan, I see we were on a similar wavelength this week! One of my favorite parks also, so glorious whatever the light! Lovely verse works beautifully with your images.

    • Yes, I immediately thought of Bryce when I saw what the challenge was. One interpretation of the word hoodoo is bewitched. They are a bewitching sight.

  2. What a lovely collection, Siobhan. You’ve picked a great place to highlight. I didn’t know the word hoodoos before! Now I do, thanks to you! I must go to Bryce!
