Hoodoos in the Badlands by George Cousins
Clear

Currently unavailable for purchase


These pillars in the Red Deer River Valley of Alberta, Canada,were formed by water and wind erosion, and have been thousands of years in the making. The sandstone pillars are very fragile, and erode quickly if the protective capstone falls off. Another of the many facets of the prairies.

  • Thank you. Yes, they’re quite fascinating places. So interesting to see what wind can do to rock formations.

    Oooh very interesting rock formations.

  • The Hoodoos are a protected area because the rock pillars are quite soft (relatively speaking)and the wind wears them into these odd shapes. I have a few more that I’ll post eventually. A very warm day, around 30 deg.C. at the time.
