At first glance, most individuals believe that glaciers brought the rocks to this area.  However, geologists have discovered that this small area of New York State has not been touched by glaciers so that is false.

Some say that they were moved here from the nearby Catskill Mountains by erosion and gravity.  Millions of years ago, this area was covered by a large, shallow sea.  The Catskill Mountains were formed to the east at this time.   Rock city sits on a conglomerate known as the Devonian Salamanca conglomerate.  Conglomerate rock is individual stones cemented together.  The theory is that conglomerate is being carried downhill by soil creep that has been going on for thousands of years.

Another explanation is that continental collision formed the elevated Allegheny Mountains .  Erosion is uncovering ancient Paleozoic rocks, the youngest of which are Thunder Rocks.  In short, this theory says that Thunder Rocks are native bedrock and sit where they were deposited as sediments millions of years ago.

An Iroquois legend I heard while in the Park states that there once was a struggle amongst the guardian spirits of rocks to see who was the strongest.  They challenged each other to see who could throw the largest rock to the top of a mountain.  The Iroquois tribe close by heard thunderous noises coming from the mountain and upon investigation they discovered the “thrown” rocks and named them “Thunder Rocks”.

Scenery & Landscapes


 

 

 

 

“There is a serene
and settled majesty
to woodland scenery
that enters into 
the soul and delights
and elevates it,
and fills it with
noble inclinations.”  

~ Washington Irving ~

 

 

 

 

“I went to the woods
because I wished
to live deliberately,
to front only
t he essential facts
of life and see 
if I could not learn
what it had to teach,
and not,
when I came to die,
discover that I 
had not lived.”  

~ Henry Davie 
Thoreau ~

 

 

 

 

“Keep your faith
in all beautiful things.
In the sun 
when it is hidden.
In the spring 
when it is gone.” 

 
~ Roy Rolfe 
Gilson ~
