  • date of photo  May 23, 2009
  • location   Bryce Canyon National Park: The Hat Shop along Under the Rim Trail (Garfield County, Utah, US)
  • notes   The Hat Shop, where boulders rest upon pillars of softer material. They were formed after soil and rock, eroded and deposited from higher elevations, underwent secondary erosion, but with the hard boulders keeping the softer material beneath from washing away. This is very similar to how the famous 'hoodoo' pinnacles at Bryce Canyon formed, except that the latter consist of ancient sedimentary rock. The Hat Shop pillars are more recent deposits. Elevation ca. 7,400 feet. 2:54 pm.
