Hoo Doos (crs)
Royal Tyrrell Museum
|Start Slide Show|
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, detering them from disintergrating at the same speed as the surrounding sandstone. In the Drumheller area you can follow a special 25 km (15 miie) 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 Tyranosaurus rex (world's largest dinosaur statue) in the centre of town.
