Scale

I was looking thru the rest of my pix from the Avila flight and decided to share this one of the little rocks shooting up from a pasture between Diablo nuke plant and the lighthouse at Avila.

9309 Tiny Giants

I hadn’t realized how tall they are until looking at the pic full size (click it to enlarge) and noticing the cows grazing to the left of the top rock for scale. If the cows are 4½’ tall, that rock is about 80′ high. I wonder what processes formed and exposed them (volcanic?), and how many people have climbed them over the eons.
