The Stone Book Legend in the Pieniny Mountains

Last weekend, while I was in Szczawnica, I went hiking in the Pieniny Mountains. At the beginning of the trail, I saw this rather interesting, layered rock.  Due to my limited grasp of the Polish language, I was lucky to be with a local who was able to translate the text on the information board for me. …
