    Rocks

    Everywhere you look you see rocks. You find them everywhere.  There are so many rocks that we take them for granted.  The Adirondacks are full of rocks. We even have an entire area dedicated to hiking in and on rocks called the High Peaks. 

    To me rocks are awesome.  I love looking at rocks.  As I spend time in the woods I look for rocks that stand out.  Rocks can either be a symbol or landmark and I often wonder if the same rocks I'm looking at were a waypoint to some Indian war party or meeting point for a patrol of soldiers during the French and Indian War.

    Next time you visit the Adirondacks, just take a walk into a random piece of woods and look at the rocks, I think you'll see what I'm talking about.
