The hoodoos north of Debeque, Colorado, on the way to the Little Book Cliffs Wild Horse Area, are a sweet surprise if you aren’t expecting them. Hoodoo rocks are often fantastically shaped, naturally carved rocks or earth pedestals, pillars or columns. The word hoodoo probably derives from voodoo, a West African-based religion in which magical powers can be associated with natural features. Hoodoos conjure up images of strange events.

I don’t think I have ever been to an area with a bunch of hoodoos. I still haven’t been to the Painted Mines near Colorado Springs and every time I see a picture I feel bad that I haven’t been! There are hoodoos there I think.
We were so surprised by these the first time we went to the Little Book Cliffs Wild Horse Area. Walden LOVES them. It’s just a big maze that he runs around like his tail is on fire.
