"where I got my head in a hat"

 

 

Drumheller - the Hoo Doos

 

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.
