Field Trip: Johnson's Shut-Ins
The ladies and I took the kids on a field trip yesterday. We went to Johnson's Shut-Ins State Park. What an amazing place. The river flows through a volcanic formation of Rhyolite creating natural pools and slides. It goes for about a half mile of river bed. The water was pretty low yesterday. The kids had a great time.
Oh, and we went to Elephant Rocks State Park first.
It is another geologic wonder. Huge granite boulders piled up all over the place. This picture is on the 'baby elephants' near the parking lot. I was too blown away, and too hot, to remember to take pictures of the real elephants. I think we will be planning an overnight return visit to this area in the near future.
