An out of this world place on earth.

White Pocket in Vermillion Cliffs National Monument is a geological wonder. If you look closely, different types of rock formations can be observed all of which succeeding in giving you that otherworldly feeling, as if you were not on earth at all. Like any minute, there would be an alien coming out of the hill welcoming you on their planet. The thing is, different theories have actually been thought of on how this bizarre landmass was formed but none so far have arrived to the truth. I guess we are still alien to our home planet after all.
