Day 4: Hoodoos and Dinosaurs


Hoodoos in Drumheller, Alberta, are a distinctive feature that continues to attract thousands of visitors each year. The sediments comprising these hoodoos formed between 70 and 75 million years ago during the Cretaceous Period as clay and sand sediments from the Horseshoe Canyon Formation were deposited. These hoodoos are able to maintain a unique mushroom-like appearance as the underlying base erodes at a faster rate compared to the capstones, a rate of nearly one centimeter per year, faster than most geologic structures.

Dad wished he had his puffer with him!

The Royal Tyrell Museum was so fascinating. To be able to see the workers behind a glass wall actual working on real fossils was really “neat”.
