            Wow, that series is quite a visual trip. Lemurs appear in several Wm. S. Burroughs novels, as I recall.

                  Well it's limestone but it's erosion rather than deposition that have left them like this. The sheer scale of them is staggering.

                    That makes sense. And, I agree, the sheer size is staggering. But, if I might add...staggering in its beauty. Thanks again!

                        Thre's something mildly similar in Bolivia the Moon Valley (La Valle de la Luna). A number of reasons, I suspect, lead to a far less opulent nature being there: the altitude of about 3600 metres above sea level and the proximity to the big city of La Paz whence many, many tourists come to see the stone park every day who by their clambering about the plave disencourage animmals to breed.
