The highlight of this trail is the hoodoos...an up close and personal experience with these magnificent rock formations that have been formed over millions of years. The shapes, the colors and the sizes of them are otherworldly.
It's amazing to me that just 90 million years ago, this area was an ocean...
...and today, this is what we see.
The trail twists and spirals downward through man-made tunnels. Around every turn there is a humongous, magical
backdrop...so strong and yet so fragile.
Looking out as far as you can see...
...looking straight ahead...
...and looking up !
This is the Queen's Garden. The Queen Victoria hoodoo was named for a statue of the Queen in London.
I can't believe it is already Labor Day week-end...the beginning of fall. Sure hope everyone has a grand time.
Until next time, happy trails !
