The Stone Turtle

This is a beautiful example of a sculpted boulder. The stone has been shaped into a Turtle. The head is exposed to on the lower left. The plates of the shell are clearly defined and the left front leg lays alongside as if the Turtle is swimming by.

Howling at the Moon

This outcropping of stone has a number of exciting for things going on.

First, notice the shelter that has been carved deep into the stone. On rainy days you can get full protection from getting wet.

To the left of the cave is a large tower of stone. This twenty foot plus formation has been cut free from the ledge in front of it causing it to fall forward and stand straight upwards. What is most interesting about this stone is its resemblance to a coyote or wolf. In the second picture notice the head for the dog pointed upwards to the sky. I have been here when the moon is out and it is quite the site.
