Caption: A strange land formation known as the Natural Pyramids, Earth Pyramids, or simply Pyramids, near the village of Euseigne, Val d'Herens, Valais, Switzerland. The 10-15 meter high cones were created by erosion near the end of the last Ice Age. Originally they were part of an enormous pile of debris left by the retreating ice; the boulders on top protected the cones from eroding away completely.
