Devil's Horns + Devil's Pool = Devil's Town!

I don't know if these rock formations, called devil's horns for a good reason, are unique in the world but I sure found them amazing. The entire site is called Devil's Town due to these horns cropping out of the area. Getting here is a bit more tricky because you need to drive all the way. Only someone as crazy as me would actually come here in winter but the view with the snow caps was stunning too and even better was that it was all closed up for the season. Basically looking back I think it was crazy to wade around 30cm of snow to get to the top of the lookout but at the time I sure didn't want to just drive back (actually the drive for the last couple km was scarier even with the winter tires). The sign recommends chains to continue...

The area is not that big so you can walk around it within a couple of hours and see most of it. Usually they have stalls for selling crafts or snacks but it was all empty. There is a decent map picture at the beginning of the area so you can find the hot water pools (devil's pool) on the way but as it was the only spot on the path not covered by snow it was easy to find anyway.
