Rock Sites of Cappadocia and Goreme National Park in Turkey

Share/Bookmark

Cappadocia is one of those rare places that must be experienced at least once in a lifetime with soaring rock formations, uniquely-rippled landscapes, splendid walking trails, mysterious underground cities and rock-cut churches. Millions of years ago violent eruptions of the volcanoes Mt. Erciyes and Mt. Hasan covered the surrounding plateau with tuff. Wind and weather have eroded the soft volcanic rock into hundreds of strangely shaped pillars, cones and fairy chimneys, in colors ranging from pink to green and yellow. Humans have settled in this area since the Bronze Age and have left their own mark on this weird and wacky moonscape by burrowing into the soft volcanic rock to live. The World Heritage property Göreme National Park and the Rock Sites of Cappadocia is subject to legal protection in accordance with both the Protection of Cultural and Natural Resources and the National Parks.

Chimney Rock Trail, Oregon

Chimney Rock Trail, Oregon

Share/Bookmark

One of the most scenic areas of Central Oregon surely has to be along the Lower Crooked River. Chimney Rock overlooks a bunchgrass landscape that has been etched by the beautiful cliff-rimmed canyon of the Crooked River. A hiking trail begins on the canyon floor and winds it’s way up to the rock formation providing several great opportunities to photograph the unique rock formation and the wild and scenic river below. The trail, like all of the Lower Crooked Wild & Scenic River area, is managed by BLM and it starts directly across the road from the Chimney Rock Campground.

Share/Bookmark

Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, is located in the geographic center of Australia, in the southwestern part of the Northern Territory. It lies west of the Simpson Desert, about 208 miles southwest of Alice Springs and 288 miles by road. The huge sandstone rock is 1,142 feet high and can be seen from miles around. It measures almost 6 miles in circumference and is known for appearing to be different colours at different times of day. The rock has been sacred to Aborigines for centuries and the local name Uluru was officially recognized in 1993. The name Uluru has no meaning and was a local family name. A flat dirt path surrounds the rock and can be completed in approximately 4 hours. The climb to the top is one mile long, much of which is at a steep angle. There is an entry fee of $25 per adult to enter the park, children may enter for free.

Capitol Reef National Park

Capitol Reef National Park

Share/Bookmark

The Waterpocket Fold is a straight, 100 mile long ridge of tilted and layered rock stretching from the Fishlake Mountains in central Utah to Lake Powell in the south. Most is preserved in Capitol Reef National Park, which contains multicolored cliffs, narrow canyons, ridges, arches, spires and domes. That landscape makes Capitol Reef Country perfect for outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, horseback riding, ATV tours, hunting, fishing, wildlife viewing, or just a quiet picnic. Capitol Reef encompasses the Waterpocket Fold, a warp in the earth\’s crust that is 65 million years old. It is the largest exposed monocline in North America. In this fold, newer and older layers of earth folded over each other in an S-shape. This warp, probably caused by the same colliding continental plates that created the Rocky Mountains, has weathered and eroded over millennia to expose layers of rock and fossils.
