Roots and Rocks


Here is what roots can do to rocks, little roots make their way in through tiny cracks, get bigger, crack gets bigger rock falls down. Takes time but roots have nothing else to do but get bigger and don't really care what happens when the rock lands on some one's head.
This section of the cliff was covered with vegetation until a couple of weeks ago.

Notes about the blog. Updated 08 March 2008

Not much is happening at Rock Work now. All the work clearing the trees has been done. A barrier has been erected to prevent rock falls from reaching the road. Now we wait for the geological survey in May to see what can be done to fix the rocks in place.
After that when work starts again later in the year I will post more photos.
Any news items I come across I will post as they appear in the local paper.

Or you can work through the whole blog to find more detail.

If you left click on a photo you get a larger image.
