Wahweap Hoodoos

Shortly after 9:00 we drive out to Big Water to the Bureau of Land management to get more information about some rock formation (hoodoos) we have seen in the visitors guide. We are told that it would be a 4.7 mile walk back into a creek. We get the directions and head off. Since it rained not too long ago, the creek is wet and muddy, so we have to park the car and start walking. The walk is getting more strenuous the further we walk. Luckily the creek is not steep, but walking in mud and on rocks is getting into our bones. What is keeping our spirits high is the fascinating scenery. We don’t have a watch but it takes us a long time to get to the hoodoos because we stop frequently to take pictures. Once we see the hoodoos our energy is quickly back. They are magnificent. Marco is getting lost in photographing them from all different angels.
On the way back he is dictating the speed and I have a hard time to keep up with him. I really have to grab my last resources. By the time we return to the car it is already 5:00 p.m.
After a quick shower we have dinner at Bella Napoli.
