Today I visited the park in Los Alamos that is named for my grandfather. I thought it would be nice to collect a rock from the park.
Arthur Ferrini Park, Los Alamos CA
There were many different types of rocks and most look like they had been imported for landscaping. This one was in the dirt, so I chose it, thinking perhaps it grew up there.
I like the pinkish tinge on it as well.
Measures approximately 1 5/8" long.
