Sensational Hoodoo in Red Canyon, Utah

This is one of several spectacular hoodoos at Red Canyon (Bryce Canyon has many more). What are they and how are they formed? The spires began as cliffs composed of soft Claron limestone. Over millions of years, they were sculpted by countless freeze/thaw cycles plus wind and rain. The rich red colors are from large amounts of manganese and iron that have oxidated. The word hoodoo means to bewitch.
