Nature: Rocks, Socks….I don’t know

I love rock formations. To photograph, to (well, I was going to say to hop about…but I am far less nimble than I used to be and even now am trying to heal up two badly sprained ankles and a battered shin and knees from “hopping”). But, I am inspired by the majesty and other worldliness (Joshua Tree National Park comes to mind) of such outcroppings.

I have bought books re the geology of Oregon and have taken them along on hikes, backpacking, car camping etc. over the years and learned a bit about pushed up, erupted, flowed and eroded over the eons. But, beyond basalt or bath salts, I am pretty well lost amongst the columnar, igneous and obsidians and all the other descriptions of rocks. So, I just click away now and then because something just pleases.

    Be careful when hopping about. But I do appreciate the great rock photos you’re sharing with us. ~SueBee

    I love rocks, too. I noticed recently that my husband and I pose differently and always have. I pose with huge rocks. He poses with trees. We’ve been married 32 years and recently had photos out from before we were married. Yep. I posed with rocks and he posed with trees. Thanks for the views.
