  • As Thor's Hammer should be! It was great to see this iconic Bryce Canyon hoodoo in winter glory. Great photography opportunity in ever-changing lighting.  more »
  • It's iconic because it's easily recognizable. If one allows oneself the time, there are hundreds (maybe thousands) of personal "iconic" formations to be found among the vast array of hoodoos amassed.....  more »

  • The area can be the start or the end of the hiking. It has a wonderful view around here. I recommend the Navajo trail by this area but it will be mildly strenuous.
  • Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah is one of the most scenic places on Earth. There are so many unique rock formations and colors that you must put this on your bucket list. The hoodoo shapes are truly unique and there are many trails and overlooks to stop at. Make sure to bring your camera and spend a couple of days here. This particular stop is known as Thors Hammer and you can see by the photograph how fitting it is.
