Interesting place. I was there a couple of years ago. Most people don't realize that this is what is left of an extinct volcano. The basalt in harder than the surrounding soil, so as it erodes the harder basalt is uncovered. This used to be a huge mountain which has been worn away to reveal only the hardened lava from the caldera and the lava that oozed up through cracks in the earth.
