In the map area, rocks mapped as Sherman Granite include a fine-grained facies, a medium-grained facies, a porphyritic facies, and a coarse-grained facies. These rocks are mapped as Sherman because they intrude all other rock units except younger dikes and are generally nonfoliated. The fine to medium-grained to porphyritic facies occur along the margin of the coarse-grained facies, which is the major rock type of this area. We believe that the finer grained to porphyritic facies is a border phase of the Sherman and is approximately the same age as the coarse-grained (typical) Sherman (Houston & Marlatt, 1997, p. 16).

Primus found a spent rifle shell casing while walking along:
The_Metatrix looked it up on the googles while Primus and I were measuring it with a caliper and cataloging our find. It's a 30-06 shell made by Twin Cities ammunition in 1953. Goddamned 43 year old rifle shell. She didn't tell Primus, so he can figure it out by himself.
