Viewing the hoodoos is like an out-of-body experience. The surreal looking, gigantic rock shapes resemble freaky creatures from a lost world. The term "hoodoo" is reportedly a Paiute Indian name loosely translated to mean: Red rocks standing like men in a giant bowl." And that's exactly what they look like. Geologists believe that Bryce Canyon began at the same time dinosaurs were becoming extinct. It is considered one of the world's greatest geologic masterpieces. While all of the national parks in Utah are amazing, if you can see only one, I'd recommend Bryce Canyon. It's phenomenal!
