Ghost Ranch "Rocks"

Posted by

Walking along one of the Ghost Ranch NM arroyo trails, and up into some of the red rock formations, I found this one big "white" rock in the midst of the reds. Seemed a standout by my standards. So here it is...

Really interesting! How strange! It seems out of place, doesn't it?

Where on earth did that big piece of granite come from??? There is a geological story there somewhere. Interesting photo.

@Formerly Known as MontereyJohn: Thanks, I wasn't sure if it was granite or something else.
