八十萬年前,大屯火山群的竹子火山爆發,炙熱的熔岩順應著山勢,成兩路奔流入海,形成了向外海延深伸的狹長陸地,與富貴角兩兩相對的海岬--麟山 鼻。有人曾形容鱗山鼻是台灣最北的美麗鼻尖,關於這樣的描繪,應該說是貼切的,因為它所處的地理位置,也因為它的獨特,確實是令人目不暇給的。

現今看似平靜的海岸,雖然已離當年劇烈的火山活動久遠,但是那些驚天動地,早已在瞬間,清楚的留下烙印。在麟山鼻北緣岩岸地形的岩石,呈現深黑色, 正是當時直接由火山熔岩冷卻而成的安山岩。質地堅硬的安山岩成為這一方新生地貌的要角,但是因為不敵自然環境的侵蝕與形塑,終成今日鱗山鼻的景緻。

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.
