Some other photos from when we were playing tourist.
One of the perks of living on the bottom of an ancient lake bed is that the local sedimentary rock is sometimes filled with fossils.
The fossil above is one of many scattered about some limestone columns we passed by.
There is also a fair amount of granite in the area, and sometimes you can really see the mica bits in sections of layers.
This picture is from a big, decorative rock sitting in a park.
I’ve always loved rocks. They often have the most interesting things hidden in them.
