Legend People

greatnatureIMG_9677The Legend PeopleThe dynamic rock formations, spires or Hoodoos at Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah were recognized by the Native American Paiutes as the ‘Legend People’ who turned to stone . An ever evolving Rorschach test, facial impressions or rock sculpted figures can been seen and are designated by name throughout the park. According to the National Park Service these unique rock formations, sculpted by the forces of ice and wind erosion, were born 30 to 40 millions years ago when a lake once covered much of Western Utah.
