With all the rocks on this talus slope, wouldn't it be fun to pick one rock and closely examine what is growing on it?
How about...... this one?
This spot (circled in black) is just to the right of the big boulder (in the first picture). This rock has a variety of interesting lichens and a few other things I'll post about... hopefully just enough to have fun, but not be overwhelming.
fossils in the rock, or the interesting things growing on the rock.
