Newfoundland Labrador have many rock formations on the coastline and inland.
A rock formation is an isolated, scenic, or spectacular surface rock outcrop. Rock formations are usually the result of weathering and erosion sculpting the existing rock.

Throughout the world, there are many rock formations, called shag rock. Apparently, the name comes from a bird, called the shag, which is a species of the cormorant. Those birds roost on those rock formations. Is this why this rock formation is called shag rock?
