Photo Above, by Allison VanNocker - the path to the Organ

The Organ is a geological structure in walking distance to the Middle Causeway

Successfully descending the slippery rock stairway we are now half way down the cliff face and walking on a well groomed trial.

Photo Above - the basalt columns of the Organ tower above my wife

Arriving at the Organ, the sun attempts to peak out from beneath the clouds.

Admiring the pillars of basalt, we estimate the longest columns must be around 30 feet in length.

While the basalt structures of the Giant's Causeway are amazing, similar geological formations can be found around the world. In the USA, some prime examples are the Devils Tower National Monument in Wyoming and the Devils Post pile National Monument in California.

Photo left - the Organ, for the large view click the photo (it will open in a new window. My son is in the lower left corner of the photo providing a size comparison to the polygonal structures.

Near the Organ, the trail branches again, we can continue along the cliff and view the more distant basalt structures or take the path to the shore, which will take us to the middle causeway and eventually return us to the visitors center; we opt to go the shore route.
