Best I ever saw ... thanks for the opportunity! Reminds me of years ago when Bunny Lady was taking a college geology class ... she laid awake at night with this tray of samples, memorizing them.

@Susan- one of the first lessons an aspiring geologist needs to learn is not to take gneiss for granite.

@dguzman- thanks for the kind comment and the great rock.
