Timna Park

Strange sandstone structures dot the desert landscape of Timna Valley, where geologists flock to study the fascinating hoodoo formations that have been formed by tens of thousands of years. 

The wind-eroded rocks even have nicknames, like the iconic "Mushroom" hoodoo and Solomon's Pillars. All in all, it's a fun hike filled with interesting discoveries.
