Slab (An Teallach)

this is an enormous gray-white quartzite slab, part of a long line of 60ft cliffs that line the valley in Dundonnell Forest.

pretty amazing to see it here, reminds me so much of the sparkling landscape of Yosemite.

the stone is covered with scored grooves, 'grated' by a flowing glacier.

..an amazing sight, and real juxtaposition aginst the red torridian sandstone of the An Teallach peaks.

better viewed large.
