Awesome is a word which is overused in this day and age, but when one is standing on a cliff which was once on the edge of a vast ocean, the floor of which is now desert which stretches much further than the eye can see, there is no other word that adequately describes the scene.
Sea shells and fossilised marine life litter the place, a mere 2,000 kilometres from the present shore line.
This place is called the Breakaway, as it's said to be the point where the land and the ocean had an argument, so the ocean broke away, never to come back again.

The clouds forming are also a bit thought provoking. We wonder where we'll get stuck when the rain comes later in the week.
