Sometimes I look at layered rock formations and imagine stories within the layers.
This formation at Fort Rock looks like the giant prow of a ship bursting through the cliffs.
A closer look shows where the water levels were before the ship drained the basin.
This jumbled formation at Malheur NWR looks like it was made by a giant who was in a hurry.
But a closer look reveals the perfect spot for great horned owls to raise their young and protect the land.
This Painted Hills formation looks like an immense shark swimming through the hills causing a commotion.
A closer look shows some of the magical green stones left in its wake.
There are stories within the layers that you can learn if you just pause to look and listen.
