Today is Nick’s Birthday! And we took a hike with Julie to Tent Rocks (about 45 minutes from Santa Fe. Tent Rocks has hundreds of Hoodoo rocks….. A hoodoo (also called a tent rock, fairy chimney, and earth pyramid) is a tall, thin spire of volcanic that protrudes from the bottom of an arid area. Hoodoos consist of relatively soft rock topped by harder, less easily eroded stone that protects each column from the elements. They typically form with sedimentary and volcanic rock formations.
Bryce Canyon and Moab have tent rocks also. Here are our pics of the day!
