Devil's Garden

After the long hike to Lower Calf Falls it was time to head over to Devil's Garden off Hole in the Rock road. I had left the falls a little earlier than I wanted knowing it was a long hike back to the car and I wanted to get to Devil's Garden before sunset.

After getting a bite to eat we headed down the dirt road to Devil's Garden. The road was in good shape considering the recent snow and the daily melting, think mud.

I didn't really know what I was in store for as I stopped in the parking lot. But once I got amongst these hoodoos a familiar exclamation came out of my mouth. Words like WOW, amazing, awesome, etc. These are words that I was frequently using so far during the trip.

Devil's Garden resides in a small area and can be seen quickly by those that don't have alot of time. As a photographer there is an almost endless number of possible compositions. The hoodoos are very unique and quite different from the others in the area and are really fun to photograph.

As the sun set to the west I began paying more attention to night compositions. With the clear sky Devil's Garden is a perfect star photo site. Next post will contain some of my favorite night comps.

  1. What's the history on this place, Roger? All natural or some carvings from long ago? Carol
