DMT ya that looks like a mega bud of Bubba Kush😎

At first, I thought it was Mariposite...


Where was that photo of the ash fall olisolith taken? Near Monticello dam?


Minerals: just got a copy of Mike Searle’s book Continents Colliding.
An incredible compilation of work on the geology of the Himalayas & Tibet.
Many of the photos look like they’re out ofAmerican Alpine Journal.

If the weather cooperates, I hope to post some photos of beautiful rock from between Grants & PieTown NM in the next few days.

Crumpled and rumpled, it looks like serpentine, but what do I know? At Bagby-on-Merced.

I did get a couple of shots at the Visitor's Center of shallow marine fossils and worm burrows in what I think is the Lower Permian Glorieta sandstone...

My interpretation is that this is cavity- and vesicle-filling analcime in basalt, collected in Black Rock Canyon near Yucca Valley, CA

Luv that White Pocket photo Mouse...has a surreal quality to it.

Flute casts at base of sandstone, Gooseberry Trail, Island in the Sky, Canyonlands, Utah. Not sure what formation this is. I think it is above the White Rim sandstone and below the Navajo Sandstone...

This thread could use some help, after the recent...........“changes.”

Was going through some old photos and found these. Probably posted them before, but don’t remember where/when.
