Obvious How Table Rock Got Its Name

The center-left in this photo is Table Rock - its natural flatness makes it easy to see how it got its name. There are several trails for hiking and biking up to the top. When you start from the bottom, it's about an 800-foot ascent. I have friends who hike to the top for fun, friends who are in much better shape than I. Along the way to the top, you can see interesting chunks of rock, mostly chunks of sandstone. Some are natural, most are not because they're leftovers from the old quarry up there. The sandstone from that quarry is seen on many old buildings downtown, including the Capitol.
