Rewind: wonderful Rock Formations pt. 3


copertina giovedì 2

Written by Valentina Romano

Over a month ago we featured an article entitled “Wonderful Rock Formations”, which focused on the most peculiar and stunning rock formations around the globe. Throught this article we showed you the Coromandel Peninsula in New Zealand, the Kannesteinen in Norway, the Glenn Canyon in Arizona, the Arches National Park in Utah, Baatara Gorge in Lebanon, and last, but not least, the Etretat in France.

As we noticed that our readers—you—really enjoyed the topic, we wrote a sequel to the above-mentioned post: “Wonderful Rock Formations part 2”. In this feature we talked about the Stone Forest in China, the Sea Caves in Portugal, Hancock Gorge in Australia, and finally Moon Lake Moonrise in California.

The more we researched the most peculiar and stunning rock formations, the more we realised that there are so many in this world, that it would be a shame not to show them all to you. Especially because most of those places are not renowned, so unless you know exactly what to look for and where, you would never be able to see them.


So here we go with our “Wonderful Rock Formations pt. 3”. In this article we feature the Kjerag Mountains in Norway, Cape Kiwanda in Oregon, the Flaming Mountains in China and the Garden of Gods in Colorado.

The Golden Scope put together—as always—an incredible compilations of pictures capturing, in this case, the four rock formations mentioned above.
