Our debt to eons

Where sandstone crumbles now by mountain road, the ancient waters left to us a gift from some Eocene earth-shaking episode. Sea barnacles tell all - each tiny node still fastened to cave ceiling, near a rift where sandstone crumbles now by mountain road.

Receding waters left carved elephants (with load) and other grotesque figures seemingly adrift where sandstone crumbles now by mountain road.
