Featured in The World As We See It…or as we missed it – August 18, 2010
This is a scene taken at the Drumheller hoodoos in Alberta, Canada. Although I had seen them before many years ago, I was again in awe at the beauty of these wonderful weathered rocks.
The eerie formations known as Hoo Doos (or Hoodoos) are found in North American badlands, formed by wind and water erosion of sedimentary rocks. Looking like petrified mushrooms, they have a protective rock cap which shelters their shaft, deterring them from disintegrating at the same speed as the surrounding sandstone. In the Drumheller area you can follow a special 25 km (15 mi) Hoodoo Drive Trail to where you can visit them along highway 10, 18 km southeast of town . You can get information at the tourist office under the 90-foot Tyranasaurus Rex (world’s largest dinosaur statue) in the center of town.
