The Basalt Cliffs Of New Jersey’s Palisades Look Like Something From Another Planet

Odd geologic formations aren’t usually part of the conversation when you discuss New Jersey, but the 200-million-year-old basalt cliffs of the Palisades are way stranger and way more unique than many of us even realize. Take a look at what makes them so special…

The Palisades are a historically important and geologically important part of New Jersey, yet they’re an underrated day trip destination. Take some time to visit Palisades Interstate Park or just pay a little more attention next time you drive the highway along these cliffs, and you may be surprised to see the beauty that’s been overlooked by so many for so long.
