GEOGRAPHY IN THE NEWS:
Hoodoos, or fairy chimneys, are distinctive sandstone formations with a harder, more erosion-resistant rock on the top and a softer rock at the base. Tourists from around the world are drawn to the fairy chimneys in Cappadocia, Turkey, and the hoodoos in Bryce Canyon, Utah, for example. For those looking for a less-traveled experience, the Ah-Shi-Sle-Pah Wilderness Study Area offers six miles of hoodoos in northwest New Mexico: www.atlasobscura.com/places/ahshislepah-wilderness-study-area
