Rain gave way to sunshine,
a perfect day for exploring
a geological point of interest:
The "World's Largest
Exposure of Quartz Conglomerate."
|"Bottle Tree" in parking lot|
But first, a meander through the
Gem and Mineral Show.
Quite a few vendors tempted
with crystals and polished
rocks, lots of pretties.
I mostly resisted temptation though.

The lumpy weathered tops of the rocks
looked like buckled, cracked asphalt.
