Stone Masonry part 3

This is the last of three blogs about a short bluff on Eagle Mountain where Buffy and I often hike. Iron in the rock resulted in these dramatic designs, and the designs are called liesegang banding.

What an imagination Nature had when it came to this short bluff, and then having the assistance and willingness from the elements who completed these projects.

All the pictures from these 3 blogs (except landscape ones)  came from this bluff.

The hike along this bluff was most of the dramatic hikes I’ve had in I don’t know how long. It was rugged. It was exciting. It was breathtaking, and it was strenuous.

Next time I plan to hike here, I’ll be sure to have Wheaties for breakfast!

    Beautiful job, Kathy. I see a side view of a man in the first picture of the bluff.

  2. I continue tio find these formations incredible. Humans would have a difficult time trying to chisel all of the shapes and layers.
