Wingnut in Pegmatite

You see that very small figure in the middle of the cliff of granite? That is my grandson Wingnut. I asked him to stand there in order to give a sense of how huge the walls of Ruggles Mine are. This wall of stone is pegmatite (pegmatite was formed under great pressure and intense heat forming a magma that pushed up into the surrounding granite).  here you see two colors of rock. The granite is dark and the pegmatite is light colored.

  1. Oh, that place is huge. I am going there. To enjoy that place, too. No more just driving by on the way to camp. This is quite some place. He's a cute child!
