Picture of the Day - Pillow Lava On Mountaintop

My hiking buddy Mike and I made it up to the top of Rinconada Trial on the spine of Santa Lucia Mountains this morning. Near the top of one small mountain are various outcroppings of exposed pillow lava deposits which formed on the Mid-Miocene ocean-bed off of the coast of what would later become California.

  1. Wow. I would be so sorely tempted to put one in my backpack and groan all the way back down hill. :-)
