This was one of the posts that helped convince me to stay on TFF. I was so impressed by the teamwork, general open mindedness to even consider it wasn’t man made and all the knowledge of geological forms shared to hypothesize, enlighten and educate. 

I could see the love of fossils, rocks and geology working together in a community of like minded individuals to solve a very intriguing and awesome mystery of the coolest geologic form I had ever seen. 

 

I was pretty much hooked after that. That, all the cool fossils and trip reports. 

 

You core members of TFF that are here on practically a daily basis are pretty awesome and cool.

Thank you for making TFF the great place it is. I’m glad I stayed and I’ve been enriched, enlightened and educated by practically every one of you at one time or another over the past 8 months or so.

Thanks

 

Kim

Thank you for your kindness Kim.

You’re welcome. I’m one of those expressive people. I just have to say what I’m feeling.

I truly appreciate all of you. I won’t name you all. I’ll probably forget someone and spoil the good mode for someone. But you’re on here on practically a daily basis if not everyday or what seems to be all day for some. Not sure how the all day thing works. :D

Looks like some sort of very water worn meso-american carving, to me.  :headscratch:

Very Aztec-ish looking designs. 

Definitely man-altered, if not man-made.

We know better now (this place is amazing!), but if someone told me it was a Madagascaran chameleon effigy, I might have believed it.

At the risk of a slight tangent, here's a similar weathering pattern of note, however more chemical than geological. http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2018/06/unique-weathering-chain-link-fence/

I wonder how far could they be from beekite rings? :) link

Reminds me of parts of the Mandelbrot set. Could those be a lichen on the fence?

Am I wrong or the wires are actually covered by a plastic sheath? 
Also, the alteration seems to have a polarity, that is it occurs prevalently on the upper part of the surfaces 
(those exposed longer to solar radiation and warming?); 
so, could this amazing pattern be due to the dilation and shrinking cycles producing concentric and radial fractures?

I don’t know what this is, but I had to comment and say I’m amazed at it. I apologize if this has already been answered in the comments.. I looked through them and didn’t catch an update. Did you ever find out what it is?

Yes, an answer has been given. A very interesting one too. 

I suggest you read through the whole 8 pages (yes, it's a long read, but definitely worth it!) and read the development over this intriguing piece!

Yeah, I’m an idiot. I’d been up for about 3k hours with a sick kid, so I didn’t even recognize that. :doh!:

No harm done. We've all done similar here. 

We are human, after all. ;) 

Besides, sick kids are tough,  - you get an immediate pass for that. :)

Lol! Thanks for the pass! My kid, I swear, is about 137 kids in one on a good day. When sick, the whole world will know it. She’s a good kid, but dramatic. She must get that from her aunt and grandma on my side. :hearty-laugh:
