Photographer's Note

Hoodoos (and Cars)

These are hoodoos, which I mentioned in my previous note. Hoodoos are rock formations, typically found in arid areas, like deserts, canyons or badlands, like here in the Red Deer River Valley near the town of Drumheller. Hoodoos consist of soft rock topped by harder stone, which erodes less easily, which result in the mushroom-shaped appearance you can see in the photo. The hoodoos at Drumheller are composed of sand and clay.

As you can see, it was pretty busy here and people are allowed to walk and climb almost everywhere in the area around the hoodoos, which was quite annoying. Only the hoodoos seen here were protected from selfie-taking people and climbing children.
