  25. Eliza, thanks for sharing your gorgeous photo. You’ve really captured the texture, and in some ways, history as well.

    Wow, is the rock as blue as it looks in those photos of is that a trick of the light? In either case, it’s spectacular!

  27. jillslawit says:

    Brilliantly striated. All those years of pressure buckling and folding the rock.

  28. Rocks like those are a photo-magnet.

  29. These rocks look very similar to petrified trees in the AZ desert.
