This dramatic rock formation dominates the drive up to Dunsmuir,
California.
One cannot stop looking at the majestic prescence that they display,
rising to 6,200 feet.
The prominent Castle Dome is well known granite projection created
in the Jurassic Period. This is a favorite tourist stop and campground.
Many try to climb its heights. I was lucky to have lived close by and to
be able to drive around the roads surrounding them, and to be able to
catch awesome photographs.
There is much more infromation here, on Wikipedia about the geology,
history and the special flowers found here.
One is the Castle Crags Bellflower, and the other is a member of the
rose family, named Castle Crags ivesia.
