The Badlands Guardian.
The face emerges from the landscape when seen from the air.
Located in southeastern Alberta, Canada, near Medicine Hat, this great geological wonder can be enjoyed from above the ground.
However, its humanoid details are stunning when one considers that human hands took part in shaping this large mass of rock. The profile was formed by the erosion of rainwater on layers of clay-rich soil.
Viewed from the air, the feature bears a strong resemblance to a human head wearing full First Nations headdress.Formerly in that area was settled the native tribe of the black feet. In a humorous (or tragic) turn, the additional man-made structures make it appear to be wearing earbuds, like an enormous iPod commercial.
The headphone’s wires are formed by a road, and the earpiece is formed by an oil well where the road ends. The Badlands Guardian is only one of many geological and landscape oddities that have recently been discovered using Google Earth images.
