[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The sides of the small valley are lined with rows of dolerite columns that have become known as the valley of the Organ Pipes.This area is about 125 million years old and and at this time the continent of Gondwana was breaking up. In many areas of Africa molten rock pushed up through the earths surface. The shapes that formed there are the natural wondersand there are areas where the walls of the dyke are collapsing and individual columns can be viewed.
