Rio Grande Rocks [Revised]

rocks by the Rio Grande near Pilar, NM

Love the “duck’s head”

Behold these fine New Mexico stones. Pieces of some of the oldest rock on earth, down there at the bottom of the canyon, worn smooth by water flowing over them for eons. So what, huh. Go break a granite boulder or a slab of basalt from a rift, stack it in your driveway, and try to blunt the edges with a garden hose. Man, we oughta have more respect.
