The theme for this week’s photo challenge is “Out of This World.” The assignment was to “share a picture that takes us on a journey into the unknown.”
The photos I chose to feature definitely look like something from another world. Devil’s Postpile in the High Sierras near Mammoth, California, is an amazing natural wonder of hexagon-shaped basaltic columns formed from lava, glacier, fire, and ice.
This magnificent piece of nature’s art is a national monument.
Doesn’t it blow your mind?
The video below takes you on a quarter-mile hike to get to the awesome splendor of the postpile. To skip the trail part and view the Devil’s Postpile, go to 13:00 minutes into the video.
