The Redwood Road boulder pile

redwdbldrs1

Up on Redwood Road, across from the entrance to Campus Drive, there’s a pile of boulders of Leona “rhyolite,” probably from the old quarry now occupied by Merritt College, sitting under the trees. While waiting for the 54 bus one day, they waved me over and said, Look at us. I was drawn closer, ever closer to their seductive surfaces, but kept my wits about me and escaped their clutches.
