The state nature reserve "Stolby" is located on the north-western spurs of the Eastern Sayans, bordering the Central Siberian plateau. The natural boundaries of the reserve territory are the right tributaries of the Yenisey: in the north-east - the Bazaikha river, in the south and south-west - the rivers of Mana and Bolshaya Slizneva. From the north-east "Pillars" adjoin the city of Krasnoyarsk. The reserve was founded in 1925 on the initiative of the city residents to preserve natural complexes around picturesque rocks - syenitic remains. Currently, the area of ​​the reserve is 47 219 hectares. State natural reserve "Stolby" is a part of the association of reserves and national parks of the Altai-Sayan ecological region. - The main attraction of the nature reserve "Stolby" is the rocks. The most resistant to weathering rocks - granites and quartz syenites - gradually formed the dominant heights of the reserve: Kaidynsky Range, Abaktak Mountain, Stolbinsky Highlands. Within the Stolbinsky upland, a single massif was divided into a series of weathering remains - bizarre rock pillars, representing individual, most solid intrusive bodies. In total there are about 190 different rocks and rock formations, which have an unusual shape. Some rock massifs and large stones have their names. Rock Grandfather is located on the central-pillar plateau, to the northeast of the First pillar. The northern wall of the Grandfather is 40 m high, and the height of the rock from the foot is 28 m from the south. The perimeter of the base is 200 m. From the lower areas of the left shoulder, the rock resembles the profile of a bearded grandfather in a hat with earflaps - hence its name. On the "top" of the grandfather lies a stone, split by lightning in 1960. - Materials used: Wikipedia, article Stolby (reserve) (URL: 8B _ (% D0% B7% D0% B0% D0% BF% D0% BE% D0% B2% D0% B5% D0% B4% D0% BD% D0% B8% D0% BA), Protected Russia (URL: http : // .
