Land of hoodoos–tall, thin spires of rock rising from the bottom of arid basins, formed out of a process called frost-wedging. When rain falls, it seeps into small cracks and joints. When temperatures fall, the water freezes and expands, eventually melts again, and starts the process anew over and over again throughout the year.
It’s rare to see snowfall out in the canyon around this time. But we got lucky.
