Valley of the Mushrooms/Valle de Ongos
Located in Parque Natural Barrancas del Cobre, this area is named for a group of colossal mushroom-shaped rocks found here. The rock formations where sculpted by erosion of the volcanic and sedimentary rock layers, producing some intriguing and precariously balanced rocks. It reminds me of a Salvador Dali painting.
