Yesterday Rockbuddy Rich, Pi, and I went out to Red Rock Canyon to do some exploring. The plan was more exploring than getting lost in old river beds. The plan succeeded.
Red Hill is a cinder cone. I collected a bunch of cinders from it. Currently it is being mined for... yup, cinders.
Can you spot the murder in this photo? Hint: not a bloody murder.
This is "Fossil Falls" an area where a strong river ran formerly, and now there are the remnants polished smooth from many years of rapids, eddies, whirlpools and waterfalls. The vesicular basalt is sculpted, rounded, full of tubes and tunnels and handholds - all very very cool.
