I spent the weekend up in the San Benito mountains, home to the California state gemstone, Benitoite.
Some of the boulders that dot the landscape can be monsters.
They can get in the way of driving!
Some of them are even solid jadeite!
Some of them are full of gems, like this boulder of andradite garnets!
Some of them I have no idea what they are made up of.
Whatever they are, they add to an already beautiful scenery.
Happy Boulder Sunday. Thank you to @shasta for starting this series!
