Bryce Canyon National Park, shown in the accompanying photo,
is in dry southern Utah. It is carved into the eastern edge of the Paunsaugunt
Plateau. Erosion has sculpted the colorful limestone into bizarre shapes,
including spires called “hoodoos.” As you and a companion (who has not studied
geology) are taking a hike in the national park, your friend says, “It’s
amazing how wind has created this incredible scenery!” Now that you have
studied arid landscapes, how would you respond to your companion’s statement?
