Thor's Hammer, Bryce National Park, Utah

Thor's Hammer, Bryce National Park, Utah

Thor's Hammer is a spectacular example of a hoodoo, a rock pinnacle that has been formed by the surrounding rock being eroded away. The hard cap stone on top somewhat protects the softer sandstone beneath. Photographed just after sunrise, another named rock formation, "Queen Victoria" is seen near the top center of the photo. The green ponderosa pine contrast well with the orange sandstone hoodoos.
