Jo Ann, thank you very much.

Debra, I too would love to see this place again. Thanks.

Carla, this place is just fantastic. The travel to this place after negotiating 28 miles of gravel and rocky road off the main road was worth it. Thanks.

Donna, JoAnn & Merna,

It's rather late but I so appreciate all your remarks and it makes it so inspiring to do more photography. Thank you all.


Thanks for dropping by. Fortunately, I met a geodetic engineer while I was there and he told me that these rocks fall from the mountains and when winter comes the land surface forms a layer thin ice and makes the rocks move with the wind, over a period of time.
