A Day at Point Abbaye

Been cooped up in the house too much of late, so I headed out Sunday to Point Abbaye.

Lava. The rock formations on Point Abbaye, and throughout the Keweenaw, are some of the oldest surface rock on earth, over 1 billion years old. Here you can see the flow pattern, ripples, of the lava that flowed over a billion years ago.

With the low December sun and the clouds moving in, the colors were ever changing.
