Eaton Canyon’s Special Rocks
You’ll only find this exact mineral composition:
Lowe Granodiorite (Dalmatian rock)
Wilson quartz diorite (salt & pepper)
If you see this boulder…
If it’s a warm, sunny day, feel both sides, light and dark. Do you feel a difference? Why do you think that is?
Do you know the name of these mountains?
Our steep and beautiful mountains are the San Gabriel Mountains
