Just a rock?

I hiked The Sanctuary again today after a few weeks away. Little has changed out there. I came better prepared this time for a little work and a little relaxation.

On the way back I found a rock along the side of the road. This rock.

Notice how there are ridges along the top of the rock. That is where someone knapped off three (or four) flakes sometime in history. Was it 200 years ago? Was it 50 years ago? Was it a month ago?

I have neither the expertise nor the equipment to tell...

This rock once provided tools to a skillful artisan who knew just where to strike it.

Pretty darned cool if you ask me.

Thanks for reading,
