‘Melon Gravels’ by Riley Creek at the Hagerman National Fish Hatchery
I just love these basalt rocks that litter much of the landscape near and in Hagerman. They were deposited by the Bonneville flood (so interesting!). Collin and I meandered through the rocks looking at red ant hills, lichen, moss, rockchucks, and of course the melon gravels. Chase, meanwhile, was sturgeon fishing with a friend of ours – no luck this time.
