The southern end of Kivijata boulder field (Lauhanvuori, National Parks)

Kivijata is a boulder field with a length of 800 meters and a width up to 100 meters. It has a complex history. Originally it was a marginal cliff of the Lauhanvuori sandstone. Jointing and erosion made it crumble, and during the ice age the glacier slightly moved the resulting boulders. After the ice age, the ice and waters of the ancient Baltic sea rearranged the boulders and formed a paleo beach. At its southernmost point, the boulder field is still narrow, but grows significantly northwards.
