Teepees, Tuff & Volcanic Bombs!
These "fossilized hoodoos" are all that remain of a layer of strata laid down by an ancient lake that once covered the Verde Valley of Arizona.

After the sediments were laid, two nearby volcanoes deposited ash and
"volcanic bombs" over the landscape. Erosion finished off the job.

Locals residing in Verde Valley fondly call this area, "Teepee Rocks."
