Black mountain


The strangest and most unexpected sight along this strip of road is Black Mountain.  This photo does not do it justice. It is a mountain of huge black rocks.

The explanation on the board beside the road said it was granite that had a unusual jointing pattern which led to fracturing and these eventually broke into boulders.  The granite is actually light grey but the rocks are covered with film of lichens and other small plants.

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.
