America's 5 Weirdest Natural Formations

Wanderlust, a popular blog on, has this interesting post entitle: Top 5 weirdest natural formations. Two of their weird spots are located in our back yard, and they are definitely unusual and worth visiting. The post includes fun video showing the formations.

Here's their list:
5. Bryce Canyon National Park in southern Utah, where hoodoos resemble people and animals frozen in stone.

4. Ringing Rocks Park in Pennsylvania, where boulder resonate with a musical sounds when struck with a hammer.

3. Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona, where you find large petrified trees and many plant and animal fossils.

2. Chimney Rock in western Nebraska, which served as an important landmark for pioneer wagon trains.

1. Antelope Canyon, on the edge of Lake Powell in extreme northern Arizona. Antelope is perhaps the world's most photographed slot canyon, and it is certainly one of the most beautiful. It is located just outside of the town of Page, near Wahweep Marina.

Many other spots could have easily made the list, including any of our national parks. Goblin Valley Utah State Park would be a natural for the list, along with The Wave in the Paria Canyon area on the Utah/Arizona border.

These are all enchanted spots that are fun to see and explore.
