This spruce trunk survived the 1998 wildfire in an untouched section of forest along a lake. But it too shows evidence of having been killed by a wildfire a long, long time ago. The tree itself was probably around 250-300 years old when it died.

Protruding from the slopes of rubble are towers, spikes and minarets of rock. Known as tors, these features are the product of frost shattering. Water seeps into cracks and joints in the hard bedrock, then freezes and expands, forcing the rock apart until it falls down the slope. The larger, more solid blocks remain.
Tors are found only in unglaciated terrain. If this valley had been glaciated, most of the tors would have been bulldozed away by the ice, leaving steep, smooth, rock walls.
Using your imagination to fill the gaps, try connecting the dipping strata of one mountain with the rising strata of another.
The resulting arches and troughs are known as anticlines and synclines, respectively.
