The hoodoos are made of sandstone and get their defiitive shape from the erosion of wind and water.
Our first stop was at this really cool live tree that is somehow growing sideways. It makes a perfect place for the boys to sit and eat their lunch.

|Time for a rest and water break - it's a long steep climb and although she hadn't yet told us, |
Jenny was pregnant with son #5.

|Bye for now.|
It's a beautiful place to spend a day. Next time we go we'll explore other parts of the park and see the pictographs that the park is named for. Just a word of advice though if you're planning to go with a very active 2-year old - DON'T! We were constantly pulling this little guy
back from the edge. He just ran and climbed like he was born to it and did not want to be restrained in any way. To my knowledge, his parents have never taken him back there.
