The amazing hoodoos of Wahweap CreekWahweap Creek is a major tributary of Lake Powell in Southern Utah. Approximately 5 miles north of the small town of Big Water, Utah there are three coves along the western side of Wahweap Creek containing some of the most precarious and delicate hoodoos in the world. They are remnants of white Entrada sandstone capped sometimes with darker brownish red Dakota sandstone. Getting to the hoodoos requires fording Wahweap Creek at least a few times and hiking through the wide, sandy wash bottom of Wahweap Creek encountering lots of mud and some quicksand. I guess the remoteness of this place keeps most visitors away, preserving these geologic wonders.
