Known as Devil’s Town, the  spires are formed when softer volcanic tufa that lies below a hard layer of andesite rock is eroded by wind and water. Known as “hoodoos” by geologists, there are currently 202 of these pyramids at Devil’s Town, however the count constantly changes as new ones emerge and existing ones erode away.
