Chasin' Down the Hoodoos at Bryce Canyon

Two mainly American things going on with the word hoodoo. In one sense, it loosely refers to folk magic or eerie stuff happening. In "Born on the Bayou", Creedence Clearwater Revival (guys who were from California) mentioned the old hound dog "chasin' down a hoodoo". The other use of the word is the hoodoos of Bryce Canyon, which is not really a canyon, but the edge of a high plateau. So we have one word with differing meanings, and a canyon that's not a canyon. Weird.


The hoodoos at Bryce Canyon are best explained through Genesis Flood geology as well as subsequent geologic processes.

Weird stuff aside, this is about geology. More specifically, how the hoodoos were the result of geologic processes. Uniformitarian views do not give an adequate explanation of how those pillars were made, but Genesis Flood geology gives a more complete picture of how they really formed.
The visitor overlooks at Bryce Canyon, Utah, provide a breathtaking spectacle of row upon row of towering columns painted pink, red, white, and orange. Together, these columns were formed in a series of horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters, cut into the surrounding cliffs. The largest and most spectacular is Bryce Amphitheater, about 12 miles (19 km) wide and 800 feet (245 m) deep, sporting thousands of columns.

Standing guard along the rim of a natural amphitheater is an army of tall columns, called hoodoos. Conditions were just right after the flood to form them rapidly. It is hard to capture in photographs the exquisite beauty of such a vast and devastated landscape. Particularly stunning are the delicate hoodoos, slender columns with balancing “hats” on them that look ready to fall, and sometimes do!

Native American legends say these statues were the Legend People—animals that took on human form but committed a wicked deed and were turned into stone. Some were standing in rows, some sitting, and some clutching each other. You can still see the red paint on their faces.

Evolutionists and Flood geologists both say these colorful layers formed at the bottom of a lake and that tectonic forces later pushed up the layers, exposing them to erosion. Evolutionists say this erosion occurred over millions of years.
