Strange Rock Formations From Another World

Okay, time to fess up.  
Sinbad and I traveled to another planet in the Little House of the Solar System.

A nice shelter for the lost traveler.
That's not a snake in there; it's a branch.

Looks like one of those walls built by the Inca.

A ready-made fireplace?

Hard to believe Nature did this and not a construction crew.
No forklift could carry this boulder.


  1. All great nature finds. The branch has a remarkable similarity indeed to a snake. Its you telling it otherwise it would leave the cave empty I guess.

  2. That first one looks like an elephant's eye. It is amazing to see all those different formations.

  3. Such wonderful and amazing formations. Really interesting and great photos.

  4. Wonder how that first one was formed?

  5. how cool! i'd have totally believed it was a snake. what a cool 'bus stop' shelter. and sacrificial altar? :)

  6. Jon,
    These rock formations are amazing.
    You are correct - no forklift can lift that boulder. Makes me admire all those monumental structures erected before the industrial age.
    Happy Thanksgiving!
    Peace :)

  7. Excellent shots of these rock formations. Very very interesting. I do think I would be wary of what might want to find shelter in that cove at night.

  8. That 1st one does look like an elephant's eye! Such a neato place, John. Its now on my bucket list.

  9. These are great rock formations. Love the fireplace.

  10. The slow processes of weathering and erosion really do make some remarkable scenes.

    Nice post - and the twig snake is very convincing!

  11. Exactly -- another planet, for sure!

  12. This place is so magical!
