On October 29, 2012 we took a trip to Rock Springs to see Ableman’s Gorge, a unique geological rock face that is the remnant of an ocean bottom that used to be there millions of years ago. The area also has artifacts from it’s former mining era.
We start along the path..
Here is the rippled rock, former bottom of the sea that WAS there.
Artifacts from long ago..
Not only that, there is a continuously running spigot with water tapped from the spring, no charge for the water.
More interesting information about Rock Springs.
We had a great time here exploring.
