This spectacular location is just a short walk from the Tioga Pass road. Near Tuolumne Meadows and Yosemite National Park Glacial erratics atop Olmsted Point. Erratics are huge boulders left behind by the passing of glaciers which carved the granite surroundings into their present-day form, Yosemite National Park, California Mammoth Peak over Tuolumne Meadows, Tioga Pass, Yosemite National Park 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 Devil's Postpile, a spectacular example of columnar basalt.
