B Is for Big Rocks

My mother loved big rocks. I’m featuring here a few of her favorites:

Gail Martin – Dec 1, 2003 -This was taken on that beautiful curve on the highway just north of Noel, Missouri. South of Uncle Jesse McGhee place between Noel and Lannigan. Uncle Jess used to sing “The lights of Lannigan are watching you old man” Is that an Irish song? I still like big rocks. Gail

Karen Kolavalli – The only song I can find is “Lannigan’s Ball” and it doesn’t have that line in the lyrics. I’ll keep looking!

Carol Garriott – What’s with this penchant for big rocks that we have, Gail?

Cindy Ross  – Reminds me of the many rock hunts my family went on for 4-H. Kristy & the twins are carrying on the tradition.

Karen Kolavalli  – Remember that big “pink” hill in Texas we all climbed up on one trip down to see Carol? Pink granite, wasn’t it? I doubt that I’ll ever be that adventurous again!

Carol Garriott – Apr 20, 2013 – Enchanted Rock is an enormous pink granite pluton rock formation located in the Llano Uplift approximately 15 miles north of Fredericksburg, Texas, USA and 15 miles south of Llano, Texas. Enchanted Rock covers approximately 640 acres and rises approximately
425 feet above the surrounding terrain to elevation of 1,825 feet above sea level. It is the largest such pink granite monadnock in the United States.

  1. They are some big rocks.

    I’m sure I read about a Chinese Emperor who once had these huge rocks moved to the palace because he thought they’d bring him luck
