Photographer's Note

Thousands of delicately carved spires rise in brilliant color from Inspiration Point of Bryce Canyon National Park. Millions of years of wind, water and geologic mayhem have shaped and etched the pink cliffs at Bryce, which isn't actually a canyon but the eastern slope of the Paunsaguant Plateau.

People have lived in the Colorado Plateau region for about 12,000 years, but only random fragments of worked stone reveal their presence. Artifacts add details of human use at lower elevations. Paiutes lived in this region when settlers and other people came to southern Utah. The settlers accounted for the "hoodoos" as the "Legend People" whom Coyote has turned to stone.

I used HDR process for this photo.
