ABC Wednesday: Rocks

I for one think rocks rock. Riding along on the road I love to encounter large rocks off to the side. I wouldn't want to roar into a rock boulder in the middle of the road.
The trees growing out of the rocks left when the mountain road was cut are literally growing between a rock and a hard place.
I think stone buildings are charming and they are really rock buildings by any other name.
I like the texture of the loose rocks but I imagine they would make me see red if they started falling onto my car when I'm on the road.
You would have to have rare strength or really good machines to move the large boulder style rocks.
I love the stone bridges made of rocks which are rarely seen in my part of the state but are common in the mountains not too far from me.
Sometimes I randomly daydream about a rock wall in front of my house but I can't afford one.
It would be really cool to have a rock water feature like the one right below and a river to run through it.
You really should click right here for other takes on the letter R.

Clever choices

So we have a bunch of "falling rock" zones on our roads. What, exactly, does that mean in terms of how we might alter our behavior?

Love esp the last photo!

It always amazes me to see a tree literally growing out of a rock - how does that happen? The bridge is pretty cool too! Great choice for the letter "r!"

EG CameraGirl said...

Lots of wonderful rocks, Carver. I'd love a rock wall too. Oh, well!

You have made a simple rock ROCK! You GO girl! lol I love your photos especially the rock bridge. We don't see that sort of thing around here - we're too "young" for that sort of thing. lol

What a Rockin' good time I had Rollin' through the Rock Road of Photos today.

My dad would have loved your choice for R, Carver. When I was a teenager, he built a rock wall in the house. Many years later, he built me a rock fireplace. He had no training, was certainly not a stonemason, but had an artistic eye and loved to build things.
Your photos are super. I really miss mountain roads, but not the ones with signs saying "Watch for rolling rock" because avalanches are very scary.
Thanks for the memories.
