What is Rock Weathering?

Ah, the weather. Rain, wind, snow, ice, heat and cold all affect the nature and appearance of the Earth’s exposed rocks. Rocks and minerals that are out in the open over time will change the way they look due to the weather. The heat and cold will make the rocks expand and contract which can cause cracking and flaking.

Rock Camp was Fun!

I held my annual Rock Detectives Camp last week and it was a blast!
