I am a big fan of rock/tree formations, and thus the Rock Garden Trail in Red River Gorge State Park was a must for me.
The rock garden is, expectedly, very different from designer Japanese landscapes. Because everything is here by chance, all depends on the viewer.
It is hard to say what I like about these landscapes. They are clearly not everybody’s taste.
Maybe they vaguely suggest archaic temples to me — either unfinished, or in utter destruction. The trees serve as columns, while the rocks are material for more permanent structures, to be used or in slower decay.
