These are some the photos from Bryce Canyon and Monument Valley that were left out of the original blog, plus two photos from Gooseneck Canyon which were totally missed, obviously not impressive enough at the time, though unlike anything else I’ve ever seen.
I have added captions to tell the difference between Hoodoos, which we only saw at Bryce Canyon and Mesas, Buttes and Spires that were so amazing at Monument Valley. The latter three are the names of the formations at various stages of change, starting as Mesas, which are flat or table top mountains, as they weather they change to Buttes and eventually become Spires.
As we left Mexican Hat we pulled into Gooseneck Canyon, surprisingly it was barely marked on the road or any of the maps. There were many surprises!!
I had no idea what Hoodoos were until I visited Bryce, the name Hoodoo conjures up all sort of images but seems totally appropriate for these ghostly structures.

This has been a self-indulgence in photos but if you stuck through it until here then I hope you enjoyed it too.
