Rocks may represent an interesting thing only for the geologists or for those passionate by rocks, but when it comes to a single rock formation in the White Desert, the things totally change! The rock formations over here are so interesting, fascinating and strange that everybody is definitely amazed by their presence. The landscape created by these rocks it seems like coming from another world. The most of the rock formations have unusual shapes that look like different things, such as mushrooms, the creator of the shapes being the wind who eroded the rock sediments. The rock formations are huge, so under such a mushroom you will feel small. And that if the amazing rocks will not make you to forget about yourself. There are areas where you can see how from the sand dunes arise the rock formations like the sand would be the land for their “roots”. You also can see sand ridges, which are very thin and looking like some large and black bands. Another interesting view is offered by some red and thin features that are situated inside the large and black bands which are in fact the reflections of the sand ridges abrupt tops. The rock formations are, some of the, covered, some of them are exposed and colored in bright colors, the variations of the colors depending on the rock’s types and textures. The rock formations may be laying on hundred kilometers; naturally, there are many questions about how the wind erosion could make such shapes as if a sculptor would have created the shapes with his hands. The geologists have their explanations but the best thing we can do is to live the joy of seeing them, like some nature’s wonders.
