Prescott’s Granite Dells

I was able to research these strange, captivating rock formations found here in Prescott and the surrounding area. They are called Granite Dells and were formed from erosion over the past 1.4 billion years! The unusual shape is caused by “spheroidal weathering” and the Dells are high in uranium. Houses built here have to closely watch radon levels coming from the rocks!

Interesting!
