    1. It's fascinating to read how it happens. There was quite a bit of upheaval around here a long time ago.

  6. I love the pictures, although I always feel a bit nervous around rock formations like that. It'd be just my luck that they'd fall when I'm around them. Heh!

    1. Oh no! We do get a lot of thunderstorms here during summer. It's a good thing when it keeps the fires away.

    1. They have fantastic coloring, don't they? And the closer you get, the more layers you see.

  10. Hi human, Shannon,

    Those are quite the rock formations. Remind me of the rock formations near where I live called, "The Roaches."

    Hope your kids have a fun time and you also.

    I note a link about, "Grain." My human used to work for the Canadian Grain Commission.

    Pawsitive wishes,

    Penny! :)
