This photo might make you wonder if you’re still on Earth, but relax because these snow pillars are real
They’re called penitentes, which is Spanish for penitent-shaped snow. These formations are often found at high altitudes at Piloto Glacier in the Central Andes. They form as snow melts and wind up looking like a column that’s wider at the base and narrower at the tips. Whatever you do, don’t slip and fall.
