Pompey's Pillar

There are least 73 named pillars in Montana according to the U.S. Geological Survey, U.S. Board of Geological Names. A pillar is defined as: "Vertical, standing, often spire-shaped, natural rock formation (chimney, monument, pinnacle, pohaku, rock tower)."[1] The Oxford Dictionary of Geography defines earth pillar as: "An upstanding, free column of soil that has been sheltered from erosion by a natural cap of stone on the top. They are common where boulder-rich moraines have been subject to gully erosion, as in parts of the southern Tyrol.[2]
