This is another shot of this ancient volcano plug, in Wyoming, which has been left after 50 millions of years of erosion It is a religious site for all the Indian tribes for miles around.
The nearest we have to this in the UK is the Cribbs Causeway in Northern Ireland where the solidified columns of molten rock can be seen more clearly.

Look's great-I would be terrified to stand next to it incase sections decided to fall off.

It was an inspiration for the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind. It make me want to watch the movie again. Nice perspective.

You're on the wrong side of it Jeff. It's the other side where the space-craft with all the fancy light is. ;D LOL! Excellent POV and capture! :)

We drove through the badlands, and at one point could see this formation off in the distance, but didn't get over that far. Thanks for posting this so I know what we missed!
