Bodacious Rock Formations

Geologists use over a dozen terms to classify rock structures formed by natural processes, with good reason. Monumental specimens of molded minerals exist literally everywhere on Earth, and the list of notable formations seems endless. These three photos highlight the balancing stones on Brimham Moor, strange pedestals named Wahweap Hoodoos jutting out of flows, and sedimentary layers of The Wave at Coyote Buttes.
