Milky Way over Sandstone Fins. Sandstone fins stand on edge.  Vertical fractures separate standing plates of sandstone that are eroded into freestanding fins, that may one day further erode into arches, Arches National Park, Utah Sunrise light touches the Fins.  Sandstone fins stand on edge.  Vertical fractures separate standing plates of sandstone that are eroded into freestanding fins, that may one day further erode into arches, Arches National Park, Utah Devil's Postpile, a spectacular example of columnar basalt.  Once molten and under great pressure underground, the lava that makes up Devil's Postpile cooled evenly and slowly, contracting and fracturing into polygonal-sided columns.  The age of the formation is estimated between 100 and 700 thousand years old.  Sometime after the basalt columns formed, a glacier passed over the formation, cutting and polishing the tops of the columns.  The columns have from three to seven sides, varying because of differences in how quickly portions of the lava cooled, Devils Postpile National Monument, California
