Etched in Stone

By Kevin R. Pogue

Etched In Stone. The geology of City of Rocks National Reserve and Castle Rocks State Park, Idaho. The granite of the Albion Mountains has been deeply etched by the corrosive action of water and naturally occurring compounds in solution. Though “etched in stone” is a phrase often applied to something that cannot be changed, this book should convince you that the City of Rocks and Castle Rocks are anything but static and unchanging. The etching of these rock spires has been happening over millions of years. The present shapes should be viewed as a mere snapshot in geologic time.
