White Foam and Black Granite

Trail Thoughts and Musings

The river bed is strewn with large boulders of granite that are the legacy of the powerful forces of erosion. These rocks are continually being pried from the walls of the canyon by the freezing and thawing of water in the granite. Here can be seen one of these that is stationed in mid-stream with the water foaming around it
