Glaciers moved in different directiions across this place and the scratch and shine are evident here. This granite has incorporated gravel into the matrix and it only partially melted and was apparently extruded and flowed before it froze in place before the Sierra was fully formed.

    I would give you the full tour if you contact me before you go. This is a favorite area of mine with "hidden places" right out in the open.
