Catherine W. Singer is a life-long photographer and writer. She specializes in landscape, travel and nature photography.
These two images are from a recent trip to Utah. Three Sisters is in Goblin Valley State Park, 12 miles from Hanksville, in the San Rafael Desert. The hoodoos here are referred to locally as goblins. Goblin Valley State Park and Bryce Canyon National Park contain some of the largest occurrences of hoodoos in the world.
Catherine snapped the second photo at Zion National Park, during the Covid-19 shutdown. Park visitors were allowed to drive through but not stop. Both parks are made unique by layers of sand stone and rocky sediment. Over millions of years, these areas, once submerged in water, became desert and uplifted with the Colorado Plateau.
