Yehliu, Taiwan

The Yehliu promontory is now set aside as a Geopark (great concept, don't you think?).  What it has to offer are dozens of mushroom rocks like this one, many of which take on fanciful forms like 'Queen's Head,' which has become an icon of Taiwan.  The top of each mushroom is pockmarked by solution pits in calcareous sandstone.  [2012]
