Desert Meditation moonlight over the Toadstool Hoodoos

Back in November 2021, my co-founder Ricardo and I travelled to Arizona and Utah to explore the canyons. On our way from Lake Powell to Bryce Canyon, we noticed an area on the map called “Toadstool Hoodoos”, a rather intriguing name. We decided to make a stop there, curious about what we’d find. Sunset time was approaching and we only had about an hour left of daylight.

The trail was very short and we quickly got to see the hoodoos.

A hoodoo (also called a tent rock, fairy chimney, or earth pyramid) is a tall, thin spire of rock, usually formed by erosional processes. Hoodoos typically consist of relatively soft rock topped by harder, less easily eroded stone that protects each column from the elements. They generally form within sedimentary rock and volcanic rock formations.


The moonlight made for a very peaceful experience, nicely complemented by a 30-second meditation session with Ricardo.

We returned to our car, greeted by the moonlight.

To more desert time! 👋
