Kangaroo Island: Remarkable Rocks.

From David, who notes: Here is something different for you, Remarkable Rocks, Kangaroo Island. I included one of C who is 5’ 3” to give a sense of scale. It is a desolate part of the Island, nothing between it an Antarctica. Several people have been swept from the rocks / fallen from the rocks and the photo of the sea will give you an idea of the depth of the fall. Click for full size!

    The rocks are like pieces of a huge, rusty dragon skull. They look magnificent and dangerous.

    Oh well, duh. I could have clicked the link David provided!

    No Kangaroo Island holiday would be complete without a trek to one of the island’s signature landmarks, Remarkable Rocks. It took 500 million years for rain, wind, and pounding waves to create these aptly named granite boulders which are now part of the Flinders Chase National Park.

    Many of the rocks are covered by golden orange lichen, and interpretation signs describe even more details about the formation of the rocks. Black mica, bluish quartz, and pinkish feldspar comprise most of the granite of Remarkable Rocks.

    Those rocks really are amazing. I wish I could go see them in person, I love places like that. The coastline is very wild, and that water looks cold!
