These are natural stone structures that formed with layers of limestone millions of years ago when much of Kansas was an inland ocean. Over the millineum many of them have been exposed. These are near Minneapolis, Kansas and cover ground about the size of 2 football fields. Some of them are about the size of a one room cabin.

The "near" formation in this picture is called (for obvious reasons) "The Lips".

Excellent!

Ee, lass, there's many a Yorkshire or Derbyshire gritstone rock-climber who'd love to get their hands on those!

Great shots. I wouldn't expect to see rocks like that in the midwest.
