Strange rock formations in Pocahontas County, West Virginia.
It took millions of years to make them, but you can see them any time you wish, the Honeycomb Rocks in Pocahontas County offer a glimpse into the stone age. Called "honeycomb" because of the uniform square holes that have formed, the softer sandstone has eroded over time due to wind, rain, heat, and the freeze/thaw cycle, leaving the harder stone to form the honeycombs. When seeing them for the first time, they appear man-made, but upon closer inspection the rocks reveal their secrects, they are truly a testimate to the power and creativity of mother nature. Located just off of the Scenic Highway in Pocahontas County, the rocks are easily accesable to everyone including the handicapped courtesy of a new ADA approved 1/4 mile trail.
