a big mouth swallowing something. But, what on earth is this, Eric? And, what is that orange stuff?

This is a very peculiarly shaped sandstone rock on the top of Papststein in the Sächsische Schweiz. The orange stripes are natural colorings of the sandstone which probably came out a bit too strong in my photo. I've been at that spot two times meanwhile, once in February and once in April, and both times I had the impression of seeing a sandstone replica of some sort of cuddly plush animal like for kids - haha!

Goodness me - what you guys are all seeing - haha! This is interesting!!! I still see a sort of a plush dog that one takes to bed and hugs while going to sleep! ;-)

Eric is out looking for a plush critter to
take to bed and hug.

I suggested the Mogollon Monster (of AZ).
