To Open A Mountain
Lens: HD Pentax DA 16-85mm Camera: K-70 Photo Location: High Sierra Nevada Mtns-Hwy 40 ISO: 100 Aperture: F9.5

Some years back this mountain opened up to reveal its interior.
Although not too many years ago, geological time, since the rock is relatively non-weathered.
I'm not sure why, but most folks aren't too interested in stopping to look at this--it's not far from the old highway.
I couldn't help but be fascinated by what this mountain wanted to show of itself.
Maybe I just see things differently, but this mountain, though young geologically, is way older than I.
I just wanted to see it.
And I guess I wanted to let you folks see it too.
So here are three images of the same thing.
Angky.

Impressive sheer wall rising up to dominate the scene. Created by geologic forces over millions of years and remaining today as evidence of past and continuing changes that are ongoing. Good images. I am glad you posted them and made me look into the geology of this region.

The Sierra Nevada Mountains are said to be upthrust (not volcanic).
To my way of thinking that is some severe upthrusting! This area is about 6500 feet above the ocean which isn't much more than a hundred miles away.

Glad you liked it--seems a bit refreshing to see some of these things.
Hope you felt something like that.
