Yeliu Rocks!

Yeliu (野柳) is a wonderland of cool stones, fossils and beaches located on Taiwan's beautiful north coast. Its many bizarre rock formations were naturally shaped by wind and water over millions of years.

Yeliu park is easily worth its small entrance fee and is a worthwhile day trip if you're ever in Taipei.

On January 15, 2010 I was lucky to visit this special place with my Hong Kong friend's John and Rose. Here is a gallery of my Yeliu photos:

An alien mushroom army!

A cool fossil.

Yours truly having fun at Yeliu!

These "candle formations" really blow my mind.

Cleopatra maybe?

Another cool fossil.

Stone dimples.

A palm tree maybe?

This little cutie is called "the ice cream cone."

This one was my favorite photo!

This is your brain on drugs.

Yeliu cliffs.

Great photos! Some of them reminded me a bit of the Caves episode of Planet Earth, haha.
