A hoodoo – also called a tent rock, fairy chimney, and earth pyramid – is a tall, thin spire of rock that protrudes from the bottom of an arid drainage basin or badland. They’re found mainly in the desert in dry, hot areas and range in size from that of an average person to taller than a 10-story building.

These are hoodoos rock formations at a popular spot in southern Utah. I had not seen any night shots of them under the Milky Way so I thought I would head out and give it a run. I will admit, hiking out there at 2am alone is a tad bit creepy, but I was well pleased with the photographic opportunity.
