Pictures from a recent excursion to scout out rock hunting areas.
The pastures were well guarded by the bovine persuasion.
What wasn't cow guarded was overseen by hay-like sentinels.
Good luck trying to sneak around with all those hay bales watching.
Igneous rock in the foreground, coal mine in the background.
Banded rock formation I need to do more research on.
Bright spot by the side of the road.
More interesting banded rock formations.
Formations rising from the plains.
With virtually no trees to obscure the panoramic views...
...unfortunately allows wildfires to grab hold and run.
