a form of conglomerate rock in L. Superior
Confession: My knowledge of geology is embarrassingly limited, in spite of the fact that rocks drive me batshit crazy. Just ask Greatest Husband – he of the strong arms and willing back who has helped to feed my collector’s insanity by marching out of the wilderness with a suspiciously heavy backpack on more than one occasion.
Lake Superior’s shoreline yields – by far – the most mesmerizing and diverse rocky shoreline I have ever traversed. That stuff in the picture? It’s a type of conglomerate rock. Yeah, that’s right. It’s all one big hunk o’ rock. Like, imagine you could make chocolate chip cookies with different colors and shapes of chips and when they came out of the oven they were all fused together into one big tasty mass of beauty. That’s conglomerate rock.
Totally cool. Welcome to Rock Week.
