Highway 30, Heading East

    Newer Older

    The roads in this part of Minnesota (southwest corner, near the towns of Jeffers, Dovray, Darfur, Storden, Westbrook. My wife is from Pipestone) are pink from the sioux quartzite native to the area. It goes on like this for 30 plus miles in both directions. I love this road in the summer and dread it in the winter.

      Local stone is always interesting when it colors sections of highway. I have seen pink, green, brown and blue-green before.

      bksecretphoto Agreed. Southern Iowa has limestone gravel that is not far from white. Where I live now has a pinkish orange stone they put on the highways. That Sioux Quartzite is one hard rock.
