Forged when the tectonic plates of Africa and North America collided, this breathtaking scenery is a dramatic composition of deep ocean crust, rocks from the Earth's mantle, and eroded remnants of a 1.2 billion year old mountain range.

Various trails allow walkers of all abilities to encounter the site, and daily guides from the national park provide a wealth of geological information.
