Basalt Columns

Here is a good view, from below the cliffs, of the almost-sidewalk-smooth layout of the columnar joints on Compton Peak. I have seen joints like these in four places-- Yellowstone, Devil's Postpile National Monument, Devil's Tower National Monument, and here; and these are the easiest to access and in spite of that the least-known.

You should attach this to the fossil,rocks, and minerals album.

Re: Awesome pic!

Thank you, Dan, and for the suggestion as well. I attached it and a few others. Nice album-- I hadn't seen it before.
