Pothole Ecosystems on Bat Cave Mountain

Pothole ecosystems thrive on the summit of Bat Cave Mountain in the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, OK. Of course, water should not be taken for other than emergency purposes from such fragile ecosystems. Mount Lincoln is in the background. Imaged in Oct 08.

You may be right. Much of the rock around here is quite solid granite. However, it's also common to find rock that, when you walk across it, gives an almost "hollow" sound. And, if you search around, you can find where the rock has large sheets that are loose and hollowed out underneath, with a few holes exposing their condition. Thanks for looking, Olpinist! --mark d.
