Picture of the Day: Angle Rock

This is the very top of Angle rock, at Interstate State Park, Taylors Falls Minnesota.Angle rock is a particularly hard piece of basalt. Its so hard in fact that the St. Croix River couldn’t and can’t erode it, causing the entire river to bend at this point.

I was particularly struck by the tree growing out of the top, and the mottled, twisted appearance of the top of it. So I pulled in with this shot to emphasize both.
