The Toadstool Hoodoos

The perfect short hike to photograph some curious rock formations. Felt like in a different planet.

The Toadstool Hoodoos are a group of highly eroded sandstone formations found in Southern Utah just off Highway 89.
Hoodoos are tall thin spires of rock that are composed of soft sedimentary rock, and are topped by a piece of harder stone that protects the column. The best time to photograph these Hoodoos is before noon or right before the sunset, so that the harsh light of the west does not wash the spectacular colors of the hoodoos away.

Around the Pariah area there are many other weird formations, but this place is the most accessible and there is no charge or fee to visit. There’s a parking lot right next to the Highway and the hike is only about 20 minutes. This is a really nice place to visit because you feel like you are in another planet. If you are planning to visit this area I highly recommend the hike to the Hoodoos. Don’t forget your favorite camera, the Hoodoos are extremely photogenic!

    Rocks defying gravity and taking shapes (I see a snake head on 13. But maybe I'm just tired). Superb !
