Sawn Rocks

Ross and I took a small road trip down to Mt Kaputar National Park today, about 100 kilometers southwest of us. The scenery on the way, the valleys south of Bingara, feel iconic. We stopped to see the Sawn Rocks at Kaputar, part of the Nandewar Range near Narrabri. They rise about 40 meters, or 132 feet high. The Nandewar Volcano, active 17-21 millions years ago formed columnar jointed volcanic formations as the rock cooled and contracted. The columns are pentagonal, and large boulders, some connected like bundles, others impressively alone, lay scattered at the base of the tower like discarded puzzle pieces.
