What the heck is a Hoo Doo? It is a magical rock balanced on a tall spire. Many of them truly look like they are defying gravity. They are created by wind and water eroding away a softer layer of rock that is resting under a harder cap rock. They are several you can see right from the Paria Sage Casitas property. Less than two and a half miles away the Monument has created a trail head and hike to see some of the prettier ones right here in the Paria Valley. The featured image is a picture taken with the amazing Milky Way at night. You can also see the vermillion and white bands of sandstone here in the Paria Valley.
They are several places nearby Paria Sage Casitas to see Hoodoos.
There is the Wahweap Wash area, pictured below. It’s only about 20 miles away, but BLM recently closed the last part of the road, so it is at least an hour hike to get to from that point. Notice how different the sandstone is beneath the cap rock.
The last place pictured below is Mushroom rock Hoodoos. It’s off of Highway 89 A going to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and turning off toward Lee’s Ferry. You can also reach this area by hiking the 32 beautiful miles down the Paria Canyon from the Paria Sage Casitas.
These exquisite creations are sites to see. Paria Sage Casitas is very near many these incredible structures. We invite you to come and stay with us. Explore what the area has to offer and the beauty that surrounds it. Feel free to contact us with any questions!
