Manpupner Rock Formations

Manpupuner Rock Formations, Russia– Also Known as the Seven Strongmen Rock Formations or Poles of the Komi Republic are a set of 7 giant stone pillars located in the Troitsko-Pechorsky District of the Komi District north of the Ural Mountains. Local legend states that the seven large pillars were once an entourage of Samoyeds giants. They were walking through the mountains to destroy the Vogulsky people, but when they saw the holy Vogulsky Mountains the shaman of the giants dropped his drum and the entire team froze into stone pillars.

I am currently attending Texas State University seeking to get a degree in Advertising. I like to workout, kayak, and play just about any type of sport. The outdoors and traveling the world are always on my mind.
