Making Sense of the Tafoni Formations in Woodside, CA
If you dig geological rarities or are just looking to take a leisurely hike, trek to the Tafoni Sandstone Formations in the El Corte de Madera Creek Open Space Preserve. The hike to the formations leads you down into the folds of the forest and back up again, hitting your senses with earthy smells and filtered light. In these woods, the human roar falls silent. The sandstone formation looks as though a team of sculptors with wildly different styles went to work on the same piece of stone. It is scooped and dented, pushed and pulled with honeycomb formations at the base. It’s spectacular to appreciate what nature can do when given the time.
