Pryor Mountain - Gizzard Stones

We had a beautiful day last week with temperatures in the 60's. That is when we like to visit the Pryor Mountain foothills. We drove to Warren and turned east, then followed Gyp Road to a favorite site for gizzard stones. Here is a gully wash where I found a number of stones freshly uncovered by the winter's run-off. You can see the Beartooth - Absaroka Range in the distance.

Gizzard stones are easy to identify.
They are very smooth - almost polished. They are really obvious against the rough jagged rocks of the area.

Cynthia, if you EVER have a chance, go up the the Jerusalem Rocks in the very north west corner of Montana. The hoodoos there are spectacular. I did a blog post on them last year after coming home.
