Devil's Postpile National Monument
There is no greater artist than the nature, a look at this monument will tell you why. A geological formation produced due to cooling down of hot lava that erupted centuries ago, Devils Postpile is, along with the nearby Rainbow Falls, a part of the Devils Postpile National Monument. It is a large structure of extremely symmetrical basalt columns that tower as high as 400 feet (102m) that formed some 100,000 years ago. The site is now a popular tourist attraction owing to the beauty of the rock formation, the rainbow falls and the serene wooded area that surrounds them.
