Geology

Land of mysterious processes

where arches bow low to Geology;

lateral moraines link time to space,

chasms yawn in boredom,

tectonic plates shift to the tune

of an endless prairie sky.

    Wonderful. I am very interested in geology and Continental Shift Theory.
    Right now, we have a sunny + cold morning with shining snow. 🙂 Uta

    No, no, please tell those tectonic plates to be still. We’ve had enough of their restlessness. 🙂

    These science ones are always amazing, even as they make my eyes glaze over, and my head spin.

    That’s a great photo and I like the comparison to geology. Works well.

      It was so stunning out there. So many processes were in evidence, it was fascinating. I need to get back out there before the snow gets past its expiration date…

        You obviously got a lot more interesting stuff than us. We drove around yesterday but didn’t find anything spectacular other than a lot of deer.

        There are actual perfectly complete mini bridges – unbelievable. And perfect triangular prisms. Gullies and waves and lips and cliffs that you can’t even imagine. PLUS, the crystals were sparkling IN COLOUR – blue and pink and gold – I felt like I had found the pot of gold at the end of the – er, snow-bow. ? 🙂

        I’m guessing we will see more photos of all this

        😀 Weird. It’s like you can read my mind…

    This was out of this world! And more of that teacher coming out of you! Thanks, Melody, for sharing your snow with us! 🙂
