Steve Baker at Devils Postpile, by Alex, on Flickr. Rollei B35 slide scan. Devils Postpile National Monument, California, 1974. Three of us, coworkers, did a backpack trek and motorcycle tour of the backside of the Sierras. I’ve never seen a photo which fairly conveys the true scale of these massive basaltic columns.
