Here is my favorite at Garden of the Gods:



Kissing camels. I love seeing it everytime I go. I know it isn't as awesome as the others but I've always thought it was pretty neat.

There's so many around the world i doubt i'll ever see a fraction of them. I've seen plenty in Texas, Utah, Cali, Mexico, Spain...but i missed a couple of these.

The devil's tower looks like the bottom of Barad-dur. I wonder if they used it as inspiration?

These places are so stunning that they take me right out of all my troubles and help me remember that the world can be an inspiration, not just a frustration. Thanks for posting.

I don't know how to flag but I have given you a star due to the fact that the cheesering is a 40 minute drive from me. I never knew it existed.

Thank you!!

I would NOT be standing that close to Balanced Rock. What if it suddenly decided to become "Unbalanced Rock"? Amazing pictures, though. Thank you for sharing!

as soon as I saw your first few pics, I thought of 'Close Encounter of the Third Kind'

I wasn't disappointed to see the Devil's Tower.

Good stuff!

The ones in western australia are really good (only because i live there
).

But seriously, it's funny because considering how far i am from ayers rock, i probably won't see it any time soon despite it being within reach - albeit a good day or 2 of travelling by car. (It's right in the centre)

In saying that, i've been to the pinnacle desert when i was very small - haven't seen wave rock.

But i will leave you with the following one which is roughly 6-7 hours drive north from my city in a town called "kalbarri". I went when i was 10, and there was a massive rock leaning on a gorge, which i was unable to track a picture of, but this is what to expect. It's a really nice place

Really great thread!!! Thank you for sharing this. That fairy's chimney looks a tad fallic, no? haha, anywho, really interesting stuff.

HOw do rocks get like this? What is their origin? I've always wondered

Stunning, and also hauntingly beautiful! The one that captivates me most is Uluru, Ayers Rock, Australia. I feel the presence of God when I stare at it!

let us hope we do not find OIL anywhere in the vicinity of such splendid shrines... else we insatiable humans shall destroy in mere moments what it took nature ages to create.

thank you OP for the inspiration,

Awesome - thanks for the trip around the world - I used to collect rocks and interesting stones when I was a kid - still love science and geology

Rock-on!
