Erode (v): to gnaw away

As I’ve mentioned (indirectly) my latest project has to do with erosion and erasure as a process of language erosion. Recently some friends and I went camping at Catoctin Mountain Park in Maryland (the skinny northern part). The landforms we were bouldering to and around, Wolf Rock and Chimney Rock,  were ultimately the result of erosion. The mountains themselves used to be much much higher, but have cascaded around themselves over time, with massive beautiful white stacks of rock (quartzite) remaining while softer materials have eroded away. The resulting rock structures are stunning stacks, deep crevices, and massive boulders.

Here are a few shots from the trip:
