Shadow dance, with the hoodoo's

HOODOOS, DEVIL'S GARDEN

Photo license: © All rights reserved

After a week, deep in the Utah desert with my three teenage children. The nighttime ground temperatures reach 34 to 37 degrees, and the daytime temperatures reach 110 and hotter. We began our transformation. Our skin turned brown and red, we grew stronger, our eyes were keen, and more observant. we were no longer just happy or sad, we just were, our environment. Part alien, part Indian, mostly enchanted.

This is my son Forrest, enchanted, uncensored, celebrating life with the Hoodoos in Devil's Garden.
