The Beauty of Erosion
by Claudia Hahn
Bryce Canyon National Park (Utah/ USA) in winter 2016.
"The unique and colorful scenery in Bryce Canyon National Park has been formed by differential erosion of the freshwater limestones of the Tertiary-aged Claron Formation that are exposed along and below the rim of the Paunsaugunt Plateau." (https://www.nps.gov/articles/nps-geodiversity-atlas-bryce-canyon-national-park.htm, accessed February 15, 2019).
The typical rock formations are called hoodoos.
