    Near the headwaters of the Elk River, near Iron Mountain, to the east of Port Orford, Oregon, we came upon a real surprise. The flowstone came from a spring, separate from the stream. The walls were only a couple inches thick and the upper one was like a bathtub, about 20" deep. This area has lots of nitrogen poor, serpentine soils (ultramific) and carnivorous pitcher plants (Darlingtonia Californica) are common.

    Thank you addy! Love those. I got to see a few similar formations and they are wonders.

    I'm not so sure that fish rock is real or photoshop......

    Addy, Amazing pictures. Do you know where any of them are? I think I have seen pictures before of a few of them but I don't know if I have seen any of these in person. I know some of them you have to be there at the perfect time to see colors like at Rainbow Mountain in Peru. My daughter went hiking there when we visited that area and the only colors we saw were the intense sunburn she got from being at 14,000 ft. all day.

    Incredible! :D

    I grew up near the Jurassic Coast and it was great for rock formations - I loved seeing the giant folds in the land :)
