Many people wondered why I brought back 25# of rocks in my suitcase from Alaska. There were two reasons. First, I’d dropped off about that many pounds of maple syrup so I had the room. Second, 250# wouldn’t fit so I made do.
I did bring back many photographs of some of the rocks I did see and enjoy and will share them over the next few days. I realize for some these don’t compete with bears and whales. So it goes.
Also, I’m not a geologist. My appreciation of these is mainly subjective. Not that that is any “less” but only to clarify.
