The Stone Forest

One of the locations we were fortunate enough to tour in China was "The Stone Forest" near the city of Kunming in the Yunnan Province. The Stone Forest is exactly that - a forest of stone- and not surprisingly one of the
1000 places to see before you die.

While touring the park we passed massive stone formations that seemed to go on and on in both height and distance. I did a google search of the forest and apparently the stones are believed to be over 270 million years old. pretty crazy.

We went to the forest on a very rainy and very cold day but it did not "dampen" (har, har) our visit. I wish I could go back and photograph the area more but since I won't be going to China any time soon, these images will have to do. Thanks for looking,
