Salt Point State Park, has many unusual Tafoni sandstone rock formations like this one. Mars hasn't had water for 3 billion years, but this is what I imagine an ancient Martian ocean might look like. But this is real and here now at Salt Point State Park, 2 hours north of San Francisco. This place is covered with these formations! This rock face is only 1-2 feet thick.
