Taitung County—

Along the East Coastline, the rocks in Little Yeliou have undergone the weathering and erosion to form lots of special shapes. Just like Mothra, a huge rock after being eroded is located in Little Yeliou. It seems that Mothra (the rock) keeps watch for this seashore.

Walking along the Little Yeliou shoreline, you will see jagged rocks everywhere. If observing the sights carefully or just using your fancy, you will find there are full of unlimited vitality and imaginations in this area. The various shapes of rocks like horses, a giant foot, pig, snack, monkey and other figures are available.

These craggy stones and rocks have been under the differential erosion process.
Differential erosion means the rock strata are squeezed to crack by the moves of the earth’s crust. Also, these splits undergo the erosion and weathering by rain, salt, temperature, waves, and so on. So, the differential erosion produces unusual shapes and formations.


【自然】魔斯拉現身東海岸!?
【大台灣旅遊網TTNews/洪榕採訪】
巨蛇「魔斯拉」現身東海岸!
  位於東部海岸線的台東小野柳,在長年風化、侵蝕作用下,產生許許多多造型奇特的岩石景象,而一座栩栩如生、貌如巨蛇「魔斯拉」的岩石,就靜靜的蟄伏在小野柳海岸,彷彿在守候著這片海岸。

步上小野柳的岸邊,海天一色的景致下,是各種嶙峋、造型百怪的奇岩異石,如果仔細觀察、或運用輕鬆的心情與想像力,將會發現,這片海岸是充滿著無限的想像力與生命力,萬馬奔騰、巨人足、ㄚ環、山豬、巨蛇、人猿等等造型,您將會讚嘆,大自然這個雕刻家所塑造的,竟是如此令人印象深刻。

  這些奇岩怪石,其實就是地質學上「差異侵蝕」所造成的自然現象。
  所謂「差異侵蝕」,就是當地殼變動時,岩層會受到擠壓而產生一些裂隙,而這些岩石裂隙在因雨水溶解、鹽的侵蝕、氣溫冷熱交替、海浪侵蝕等等,使岩石風化、侵蝕作用,造成各種特殊奇怪的造型。
當您造訪東海岸時,可以帶著無限想像力,旅遊的樂趣,就在無意間的發現中。
