Yes, Tree roots can reach up to 400 ft in their search for water. Although, I don't think they are made of metal.
Since you brought up basalt with columnar jointing, I thought I would share my favorite example,
Can you guess which movie it was in?
Thanks Slayer for the thread.....I love these type of finds and discussions!! Also, thanks Archaic Designs for your picture of the 'Devils Tower in
Southeastern Montana. Like the movie, 'strange encounters of a third kind" , I found myself drawn to it. There is something just so strange about
it and amazingly beautiful. The outer ridges just don't match anything nearby...it is an anomaly. There are many theories to explain how this
'Tower' originated, however, many debates...It is simply mysterious....just like the finds in China. Mysteries.
Additionally during my cross country trip in my jeep across America, after seeing the Devil's Tower, I was drawn further East to southern central
I came across this 'un-earthlike' landscape of features, Domes, vastness, strange hues and unlike anything else seen in the U.S. It will always
remain with me as a mysterious place...it just doesn't seem to fit into anything within 100's if not 1000's of miles from it.
Again Slayer, thank you for opening our eyes a bit...to think, to wonder, to question and to explore the unknown. Unlike China, the natural
topographical anomalies, the ones in America are free and encouraged to visit. Love this stuff. Thanks
