Get your butt out of bed…
Got off my butt this morning and nailed everything down and then drove down to the tufa sighting area. Tufas are formed over time by the precipitation of carbonate minerals. I am not a rocket scientist so if you really want to read up on them I suggest going to Wikipedia and they will explain them in depth.
Tufa’s are so cool!!!
All I know is that they really look cool! Therefore I will just let my photos do the talking. They are really something to see!
Even sand tufa’s
There are even sand Tufa’s. They are very delicate and almost look like little buildings.
The tufa on the right in this next pic is a home for an osprey. What a view they must have.
This is another sand tufa that I really liked.
The Forest Service charges $3 to park and follow the trails all among the tufa’s. Geezers like me only have to pay $1.50. But it is well worth the small token payment to see these fabulous creations of nature.
