The wind was so bad that day (See yesterdays post) I opted to concentrate on close in photos of lil bitty hoodoos in hopes of creating the illusion of something larger.

Notice the sky? That's all sand and dust blowing in gale force winds. The formations in the foreground are within 10 feet of me

I call this lil hoodoo, “Chicken Head.” It's not very big and it's within a couple of feet of me. Again notice the blowing sand off in the distance…a 1/2 mile or so

Chrystals

Petrified wood in a layer of sand and sandstone

A Hoodoo hatchery about 50-100 ft from the camera. These are really odd formations with a layer of harder stone over a layer of sand over a layer of stone-sand-petrified wood- sand-stone and then at some point, coal. I'm not a geologist, but somewhere in all that is supposed to be the famous K-T Boundary [en.wikipedia.org]. Very surreal.
