Crumbling Castles

Crumbling Castles

Trinidad State Beach, Trinidad, California

The forests around here are amazing in their ability to hide rocks. In fact, I only know of one segment of trail [out of 70+ miles!] where one could go to inspect a rocky outcrop.  Thank heavens for the ragged coastline!  There is no end to rocky fascinations on this coast; from troves of multicolored sand grains to pebbly beaches and crumbling cliffs.  Miles and miles and miles demonstrating the handiwork of geology; of building and breaking down of massive amounts of minerals in the seemingly perpetual cycle of which these rocks pictured above only represent a brief blink of the eons that have already come and gone.  /geologicprose
