Blasted by wind, broken by water, the Colorado Plateau spreads across 130,000 square miles (340,000 square kilometers) of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, and Colorado. These spires, or hoodoos, form the heart of Utah's Bryce Canyon National Park. This arid expanse has been called useless by some, a landscape that conspires against human settlement. For others it's nature's grandest work in progress.
