1978 Yugoslavia Dolomites

Back when Yugoslavia was still Yugoslavia, I passed by this unique range of mountains - all tall, spiky things with these flat pieces of rock balancing precariously on the tops.  Their sculptural qualities stuck in my head.  I now know that these are volcanic rock formations called hoodoos.  Similar formations can be seen all over the world but I had never seen anything like it before.  The hoodoos I saw were located in Davolja Varos (Devil’s Town), in the Radon Mountains in what is now called Serbia, and were once a nominee in the New Seven Wonders of Nature campaign.  The same kind of hoodoos can be seen in Bryce Canyon in Utah, and, in fact, are also called Devil’s Town.
