Prismas Basálticos Huasca by Mel Figueroa

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Los Prismas Basálticos son columnas geométricas de basalto que decoran las paredes de la impresionante barranca de Santa María Regla, que ven bañadas sus paredes por las cuatro casacadas que alimenta la presa de San Antonio Regla.

El origen de estas formaciones, con una altura aproximada de 30 m, se remonta al enfriamiento acelerado de lava durante un derrame hace millones de años, que se vertió al fondo de la barranca. El barón Alexander Von Humboldt quedó tan impresionado por tal belleza, que las dibujó a lápiz en 1803 y hoy se exhiben en un museo de Londres.

Las cascadas son un lugar sacado de un cuento, donde se respira un sentimiento dificl de describir. Uno se Pregunta cómo La Naturaleza pudo Hacer los Prismas Basálticos…

Testigos del esplendor de una época, los gigantes de basálto le esperan para seducirlo.
