Devils Postpile – California

Devils Postpile National Monument is near Mammoth Mountain, California. An extraordinary example of columnar basalt, it was formed less than 100,000 years ago when cooling lava flow cracked into multi-sided columns. The symmetry in this rock structure is truly amazing. A beautiful trail that leads to a breathtaking view.
