Mushroom Rocks

Here are the hoodoos in Red Deer River Valley near Drumheller from a different viewpoint, which includes much fewer cars than my previous shot. Most of the hoodoos near Drumheller have got shapes which most of all resemble some kind of mushroom, but they actually come in many different shapes and sizes in different places in the world. Other names for hoodoos include fairy chimney and earth pyramid. They are formed when relatively soft rock is covered by a thin layer of harder rock and the softer rock subsequently gets eroded and washed away much more quickly than the capstones.
