Description

It is believed that during the process of cooling the molten lava which composes of fine rhyolite ash tuff, there was a sudden horizontal earth movement twisting the vertically hexagonal columns to become S-shape. When the columns are excessively twisted, cracks become to appear across the columns. At about 100 million year ago, there was another eruption in the area. Molten lava which composes of basalt seeped into the cracks and thus formed the layer of dark green basalt dyke intrusion seen diagonally in the middle of the photograph.
