Re: Fantastic!

Thank you. I was happy to find this formation. It's really neat and big. Now, I just have to go back there on a nice day when I have some good light to play with to get some more photos. I took this one on a gloomy and overcast day.

Re: Cool

Thanks. The best part of it is that it is not a tourist attraction. Well, at least not yet.
Greetings to you and your lovely fiancee!

Re: superb photo

Thank you. It reminded me of Chopin's profile when I first saw it, but an Indian chief reference matches this area better.

Unreal!

Is there climbing in this area? Is this a well-known feature?

Re: Unreal!

Thank you. Redstone Dunes is a tourist stop with a small parking lot and a very short trail, but this particular feature is totally unknown and out of sight from trail.
I'm not aware of any existing rock climbing routes along the Northshore Road.

Yet another Gem......

Yet another gem, beautiful as always. Would you mind if I added this picture to my "faces in the mountains" album? Thanks for posting.

Re: Yet another Gem......

Sure no problem. I'm glad you like it. I didn't realize there was such a album.
Cheers.

That's amazing!

The coincidental "hits" nature often presents to us...!
