Silence of the Stone 闐ꢪ槯諼顭갏

中新世晚期至上新世早期,海岸山脈成為臺灣島一 部分,帶來最後一期的火山事件;大量安山岩質火 山灰及火山角礫噴發的碎屑流奔離,宛如土石流一 次又一次快速堆疊,形成石梯坪層理分明的凝灰 岩,其中火山角礫與圍岩的抗侵蝕差異也產生大小 不一的壺穴。如今火山不再噴發,凝灰岩亦安靜等 待日月星辰的昇落;只是造就它的板塊依然動盪, 海浪侵蝕也持續進襲。我們乘著晚風從浩瀚銀河直 至日出,陪伴石梯坪感受千百萬年來沉默的歲月。

Between the late Miocene to early Pilocene period, the Coastal Range became part of Taiwan and brought the final phase of volcanic eruptions. Large amounts of andesitic ash and volcanic breccia created debris flows that formed distinct tuff beds in Shitiping. The volcanic breccia and surrounding rock eroded to create potholes of various sizes. As volcanoes are no longer active, the tuffs sit in silence watching the world go by. Nevertheless, the tectonic plates that created them are still moving and ocean waves are still continuously eroding them. We hitched a ride on the night air from the vastness of the Milky Way to the break of dawn, accompanying the Shitiping tuff terraces to experience the millions of years of silence.
