|A unusual arrangement of small rocks on top of a large split boulder|
While on a walk in the Woods, following the remnants of an
old deer track, I came upon a large split boulder. An unusual collection of various size rocks on the top of the boulder caught my eye; not stacked to create a wall, but placed, sort of a "door" in front of a space or shelf.
Reaching into an open space at the left side, created by some of the placed rocks tumbling down, I felt a pile of smaller, irregular shaped rocks. I pulled out some. They were colored by the soil in which they were nested.
It was a collection, not unlike the small pile building outside my own door; pretty shaped things brought home from my walks.
I placed them back as close as possible to how I found them.
|Reaching around into the crevice behind the arrangement of rocks:|
I retrieved an assortment of perhaps a dozen smaller rocks gathered together into a pile.
They were colored by the soil in which they were placed.
|With my back to the boulder, I looked north.|
I have to remind myself that there may be snakes hiding in crevices.
