Palisade Falls in Hyalite Canyon are a remarkably picturesque site. The falls drop over a columnar jointed basalt flow which was erupted atop Eocene (?) conglomerates (Absaroka volcanics?).

This GigaPan is about a tenth of the size of the one I intended to shoot. Unfortunately I hadn't carried a spare set of batteries for the GigaPan robot, thinking that the set inside had plenty of life left. About a third of the way through a thousand shot image I got the low battery light and knew it wouldn't finish. So I aborted and shot the same view at much lower resolution. It's still a great view.

I've been busy shooting GigaPans, but have opted to hold off on stitching most of them until I return from my current trip. However, I had the time to stitch this one as a teaser of what's to come. ;-)
