Nature's balancing act

Like all of Bryce Canyon N.P. this is a spectacular formation well worth seeing. It is on the Navajo Trail. Worth seeing.

Beautiful formation that can be seen from the rim trail, or from hiking down into the canyon. After seeing some smaller hoodoo's in Arizona and Utah, the Hammer is impressive.

One of the more obvious rock formations in the park. Try to take pics from below the formation, on a trail, using the sky as a back-drop.

Just amazing how this big rock is still balancing. The hike down to the hammer is breathtaking. The features are worth a trip!

Can be seen from the rim trail, but is seen better if you hike down the trail a bit. It is well known and is easily recognizable.
