Favorite Granites

IMG_1726

One of my favorite rocks is granite, of which there is a large amount in my home state of California. My favorite individual granite stones are those which show more than one pattern or color – indicating that the rock underwent a complex formation process. Dikes cutting through a stone are more interesting to me than rocks of homogeneous color or texture. One of my most enjoyable experiences at family camp last week was sharing individual stones with my daughter Jessica. She has always been fond of rocks but since she took a geology class at CMU during her last year, Jessica is even more enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
