Devil’s Backbone



Description:

This huge monolith in Crater Lake National Park in south–central Oregon, USA, is one of the park’s most impressive examples of an exposed volcanic dike. Molten lava flows into an underground crack, then cools and hardens. The frozen lava, being harder than the surrounding rock, withstands weathering while the other rock wears away over the centuries.

You won’t see this lake-level view of the Devil’s Backbone from the road or from a trail, but the boat tours that run from June into September offer this spectacular towering view.
