Meteora, Greece

2008_10_08_0089Does anyone else feel like there’s a Slestak behind that rock? The area that is now Meteora was once a seabed or lakebed. The land rose or the sea/lake drained and rivers gradually washed away the soft stone and mud, leaving sandstone that had cured like concrete, studded with an aggregate of rocks, pebbles, stones and boulders. You can see at the tops of some of the pillars that sometime around the time mankind goes extinct (assuming that we have another couple hundred thousand years or so), some of the capstones may fall. Or it may be long after H. sapiens has gone. At sunset the landscape looks like something out of Land of the Lost.
