Bunch of hot ash

A few million years ago way before I was born, volcanoes in the Pacific Northwest exploded, laying down ash hundreds of feet thick which compressed under extreme pressure, and became Smith Rock. Now slowly but surely super radical water is taking down Tuff (compressed volcanic ash) with its unique corrosive qualities, and creating the rock structures we see now...these are the pictures I took while I was there...rock climbing is cool too...
