Geo-RoadTrip: Texas Pink Granite

Next stop: downtown Austin and the State Capitol building:

The building was constructed with Texas Pink Granite.  We wanted to dig a little deeper on this one so later in the trip we went to Marble Falls to see where the stone had actually come from:

Near Granite Mountain is a granite (of course) marker commemorating the area's contribution to the Capitol Building in Austin (approximately 50 miles away).

Video coming soon!
