These Hoodoos are in the badlands of Alberta. They stand about one to three metres high and are weathered stone columns with sandstone caprocks. The problem with this stamp is that the Hoodoos are not in Dinosaur Provincial Park, but are actually near Drumheller, about 165 kms to the northwest. The stamp was issued on Friday, July 3rd and by Tuesday, July 7th were recalled. All the stamps in the booklet, including the other two in the series, Waterton National Park and Wood Buffalo National Park, were destroyed. By late August the set was re-released with the correct Dinosaur Provincial Park badlands photo.
