Redrock Coulee

Seven Persons - Once Hundred Sixty Acres and a Dream

Chapter 34

A point of interest of this district is the Red Rock Coulee. Here large boulders, created, possibly, in the Ice Age, are strewn about a valley. One might imagine that the gods had been bowling and had left their balls behind for these are in such disarray.

The stones are almost round. Some seem to be made with a central core with concentric layers of rock, like the "jawbreaker" candies sold to children years ago. They are huge, being perhaps ten to fifteen feet in diameter. Most of them are intact, and only a few are cracked or chipped.

It is only in recent years that these interesting rocks were discovered. Now, hundreds of science-conscious people motor to this accessible park. It is fortunate that these enigmas of nature are so heavy or they would soon have been carried off by rock fiends, nature collectors and antique appreciators. Many small pebbles have been taken away, for there were so many of such a variety of shapes and of all colors.

Where is this phenomenon? Meander down some fifteen miles south of the hamlet. You'll be pleasantly surprised.
