Getting Out …. Split Rock Park

“Confluence Park”??!
Why sure … it’s right next to Effluence Creek.
Never let a beaurocrat name anything.
I can assure you that 90% of the people around here call this
Split Rock Park.

There she is … reclining in the meadow.

Evidently it didn’t roll here by itself.
But was discarded like a pebble from a passing Glacier.

I’m told that “Split Rock” was once part of Mount Edith Cavell
in Jasper National Park.
That’s about 210 miles away.

No estimate how long it took to get here – or how huge that Glacier musta’ been.
But I’m sure you could have beat it in a foot race.

You might recall my recent posts on our trip to Jasper National Park
where we hiked up to Mount Edith Cavell.
I never noticed any rocks missing.

I figure Buffalo used to rub themselves on Split Rock before us White folks showed up.
And shot them.

See? I told ya there was interesting stuff on the prairie.

Split Rock Park.
