Giant's Causeway
We went over to the tip of Northern Ireland this week and visited a most unusual, geological site: The Giant's Causeway.
 Its formation began over 60 million years ago as lava flowed down to the ocean and quickly cooled.
The result was 40,000 balsalt columns, mostly hexagons and usually about 30 centimeters in diameter.  We had never seen anything like it.
