“Here's another one... This is my best friend Andrew in the San Rafael Reef area in Utah... It's definitely one of the most varied places I've ever been, geologically speaking.
Anybody else have any interesting pics of naked geology?

Meranorthosite, the metamorphic rock that makes up most of the Adirondack High Peaks. One of the closest things we have on Earth to Moonrock. Notice the darker igneous intrusion that filled the gap when the metamorphic rock faulted.
My hiking partner is a geologist. He could explain it better than I can.

“cool website, goat, but i can't get through 12,000 pics tonite with dial-up”
winter... there are only about 1000 pics on 1300 pages. Much of it is crap, but there are a few gems. The thread being titled "Naked Geology" I've posted photos of bare rock. The following photo is a long exposure of the days last light at the Utfjorden, Norway.

How about some Glacial Erratics?
“Lumberac, I wonder how many people have tried to push that rock off the Bubble in Acadia?
Goat, those ones from BC remind me of a place near Lake Powell... I'll see if I can find a pic that I took there!
Here's one from Goblin Valley State Park in Utah - they seem to have lots of rocks there that defy gravity!
“this thread reminds me of a calender I saw once - basically naked women rock climbing”
“I enjoy looking at the aerials of the ADK high peaks. You can easily see the faulting that occurred millions of years ago.
“Ooops, maybe it wasn't the same rock in Acadia, lol
Here's a rock in the bottom of Kings Canyon that you can see right alongside the highway...
