Boulders!

The brochure for Hickory Run State Park told us of a unique geological feature in the park: a boulder field. This is an area of large rocks, ranging in size from 6” diameter to 27 FEET in diameter. It is 1800’ long. (That’s approaching a half mile!) We had to go see it.

It was pretty amazing. I’ve never seen anything like it. Photos don’t really do it justice, but I walked out into the middle of it and took a panorama shot:

This shows 180 degrees. If I were able to continue, the other 180 degrees would look the same.

 

After gawking at this for a while we packed up and headed for home. Our adventure to Assateague, 2017 was over. Thanks for sharing it with us!
