  • This outlandish natural geological formation exposing the earth’s mantle distinguished itself from the rest of the mountain ranges surrounding it. A very easy trail if you’re just exploring its unique features. Rustic is a standout. Few vegetation at its base. Water partly springing from the melting ice above. There is no trail mark for ascent to those who dare to climb its plateau. It is daunting to brave the terrain and navigate it yourself.
  • Breathtaking. Surreal beauty. Must be seen. Awe inspiring. Incredible. Other-worldly. One of the wonders of the world. Needs to be on everyone's bucket list.
