Queen’s Head, one of the most famous scenes in Yehliu Geopark, New Taipei, Taiwan.
The so called “Queen’s Head” is in fact a kind of mushroom rock; It is formed due to the differential erosion caused by seawater during curst movement,
because the shape as formed after the top of rock being fallen apart in 1962~1963 appears like the side face of Queen Elizabeth.
Since it undertakes natural devastation, The narrowest part around it neck is about 138 cm now.
女王頭,是在台灣新北市野柳地質公園最著名的自然景觀之一。
所謂的“女王頭”,其實是一種蕈狀岩;它是由於地殼移動抬升的過程中受到海水差異侵蝕而逐漸形成的面貌,
因為岩石的頂部在1962〜1963年斷裂分開,從側面角度觀看時出現貌似英國伊莉莎白女王頭像因而得名。
經過長年的自然風化及侵蝕作用的影響,周圍頸部最窄的部分現在約138公分。
名稱 Name: Goodbye! Queen’s Head | 再見! 女王頭
