And obviously I should not type on an iPad. I spent a couple hours today researching this, but with no great measure of success. :)

GEOLOGY / Hello and Help please?

I think I am probably one of the newest "rockhound" wannabes around, and my knowledge of geology and what appears to be about a dozen other related subjects sorely lacking. I plan to do something about that. :)

We keep finding formations and rocks the are difficult to explain or identify, at least for us. Would some of you folks be kind enough to indenty a few things for us, and point us to good reference materials to study? I will be talking to the local community college soon, as this stuff is so fascinating and amazing, I just have to learn more about it.

We just moved to southwest Wyoming, and the entire area just leaves me awestruck. It's beautiful, and nearly inexplicable.

We saw tis today, and have no idea at all what kind of force could bend rock into a shape like this. Anyone know what is and willing to explain ni relatively simple terms please?  Photo is in the link below. (I could not figure out how to send it up as an attachment.)

Thanks - Paul  :)

Hi everyone, let me just say the only thing I know about rocks is ,they will bind up the grates on our coal stove lol.  But seriously, I've recently bought a hobby rock tumbler to try and polish some stones that my wife and I had found while visiting our daughter in Tacoma. They're still in process of that. I started to browse around and I'm finding more and more things very interesting, esp. on this forum, things I never really paid attention to while out roaming around. Other than picking those rocks out on the west coast,we've only ever picked up what might be Cape May diamonds while at Cape May N.J. years ago. They haven't been put in the tumbler yet so I really don't know if I have any of those or not yet. I did find what seems to be a very fine polished stone while at the Jersey shore a year ago but I can't find out what it is, so I'm still looking around. So I'm apologizing now for any newbie questions.

Never been to Peterson Mountain so that sounds good, but Challis always sounds good also.
