With massive granite towers stretching skyward and building-sized boulders scattered in valleys, there’s no need to ask how City of Rocks National Reserve in Idaho got its name. Dramatic geological features make for excellent nature study and even better climbing. You can also learn about unique plants, wildlife, and the history of Native Americans and early settlers at this fascinating park. Photo by National Park Service.

“Listen to the wild boulders, those secret and silent theologians, while they develop deep thoughts for you and guide you, mind and heart, to the Creator.  The voiceless theologians theologize, the beautiful rocks and all of creation, each with its own voice or with its voicelessness.  If you reach out your hand to a little plant, it immediately shouts loudly with its natural fragrance.  Everything here has a voice and, with the blowing of the wind, as they are moved, they join together in a harmonious musical doxology towards God.”

~Elder Joseph the Hesychast
