Bryce Canyon USA, Rock Formations, Hoodoos at Bryce, Human faces
Bryce Canyon in USA is not a canyon, but rather a giant natural amphitheater created by erosion along the eastern side of the Paunsaugunt Plateau. Bryce is distinctive due to its geological structures, called hoodoos, formed from wind, water, and ice erosion of the river and lakebed sedimentary rocks. The Paiute in the area developed a mythology surrounding the hoodoos (pinnacles) in Bryce Canyon. They believed that hoodoos were the Legend People whom the trickster Coyote turned to stone. At least one older Paiute said his culture called the hoodoos Anka-ku-was-a-wits, which is Paiute for "red painted faces". With a little imagination faces can be seen in the stone pinnacales.

Remains of ancient settlement , synagogue , dwellings, ritual baths, olive press, etc etc. Black basalt rock used for building
inner court of ancient synagogue Korazim is now the site of a National Archaeological Park.Extensive excavations and a survey were carried out at in 1962-1964. Excavations at the site were resumed in 1980-1987. The site is an excavated ruin today, but was inhabited starting in the 1st century. The majority of the structures are made from black basalt, a volcanic rock found locally. The main settlement dates to the 3rd and 4th centuries. A mikvah, or ritual bath, was also found at the site. The handful of olive millstones used in olive oil extraction found suggest a reliance on the olive for economic purposes, like a number of other villages in ancient Galilee. The large, impressive Synagogue which was built with black basalt stones and decorated with Jewish motifs is the most striking survival. Close by is a ritual bath, surrounded by public and residential buildings. The synagogue was built in the late 3rd century, destroyed in the 4th century, and rebuilt in the 6th century. An unusual feature in an ancient synagogue is the presence of three-dimensional sculpture,images of wine-making, animals, a Medusa, an armed soldier, and an eagle.
