The Holy City
From a distance, it has the look of a man-made city skyline. And it took its name because of the resemblance to the ancient Holy City of Jerusalem. This Holy City, is located high on a ridge, just off State Highway 20, between Cody, Wyoming, and the east entrance to Yellowstone National Park.
The Holy City is said to have been created of fire and ice, during an era of geological chaos and fury, 50 million years ago. Volcanoes would carve these natural sculptures, and spectacular silhouettes. The constant eruptions left their mark of a thick, soupy mixture of rock and ash that would slowly cool. The runoff from streams, and the winds of time, would do the rest. The winds would sculpt, and the tiny bits of sand and dust would help in the eroding process.
It really is quite a sight, the silhouette of a city, created by the passage of time, here at Holy City.
