Rocks in Louisiana

Posted: December 23, 2009 in Homepage

How often when you are traveling in northeast Louisiana do you encounter rocks in their native setting?  That’s what I thought. Not very often. One might expect to find rocks exposed at the surface in western Louisiana. Most of the rocks in northeast Louisiana are buried under many layers of alluvium. At Sicily Island Hills you find rocks in many places especially in the gorges at the waterfalls.
