Hike to Paul Bunyan's Wood Pile
Utah

Hike to Paul Bunyan's wood pile located in Juab County, Utah.

"Paul Bunyan's Woodpile

A Geological curiosity -rare in Utah.  The WoodPile is a cluster of Lava Logs formed about 30 million years ago during the Eocene period.

The 'Logs' were formed when a Lava Flow cooled into orderly columner joints having 3 to 6 sides.  The columns measure about a foot in diameter and up to 15 feet in length.

This formation was on the rim of the caldera that collapsed due to a void left when lava flowed out from under the caldera.  Basin and range faulting caused the formation to tilt onto its side.  Erosion has exposed the formation we now see."  Text from sign at the top of the formation.

The woodpile is the lava formation at the top of the ridge.  A group of 360 photographers from Utah, Calvin, Florian, and John met to hike to the formation and take photos.
