單面山是指一翼坡度陡急、一翼緩傾的山形,是因為地層被不等量抬升所形成的一種構造地形,兩座單面山之間則以狹長的海蝕平台相連。

為了區別起見,在入口處附近的這座單面山以「大單面山」來稱呼,而岬角末端深入海中的單面山,則以當地人慣稱的「龜頭山」來區別。從大單面山的觀景亭除了可遠眺整個野柳岬,還可以從岩壁上發現一層層造山運動所留下擠壓、扭曲的痕跡,並看著燭台石、薑石、覃狀石等分區整齊排列在海蝕平台上。

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
