    Amazing what nature can create and leave for mankind to record. Again, I am right there with you! Sandy

  • Thanks Sandy, these rock formations were quite unusual and unique to see. It was caused by volcanic rock (basalt) forming these hexagons when it cooled.

    Hello again Inge, if you have not been to Devil’s Postpile in Calif , it is the same basalt formation, but columnar. It is on the eastern side of the Sierras close to Mammoth. Sandy

  • Thanks! I haven’t been to the Devil’s Postpile but I imagine the lack of an ocean at the foot of the basalt pillars make them somewhat less photogenic. I will however check it out if I am in the neighborhood. Thanks, Sandy!

    wow it’s wonderful..are they natural or man made..great photo!

  • Thanks Catherine. They’re certainly natural. These are basalt columns that are caused by rapid cooling and subsequent cracking of a lava flow. It’s kind of like how drying mud creates similar patterns.
