Split Rocks – Weathering
The erratic splits because of weathering. A special type of weathering happens
when things freeze and thaw over and over. Water expands as it freezes. Water
slips through small cracks in the rock and makes the cracks bigger each time
there is a freeze. When you see these rocks, walk up close and really look
at the split part.
