Candelabra hoodoo cluster loses spire to erosion

Big Bend National Park: If a hoodoo falls in the desert, and no one is there to hear it… Erosion has claimed another victim. A Big Bend National Park volunteer brought to our attention that the hoodoo cluster known by some as The Candelabra is now missing one of its rock spires. We’re not sure when it happened, but sometime in the last two years gravity finally won the battle and toppled the hoodoo on the eastern (left) side. What shall we now call this hoodoo of two?
