The latest entry of the blog is about bentonite, a clay material abundant in the Trans Pecos, formed by the mechanical and chemical weathering of volcanic materials. In easy to understand language, Gary explains how the weathering results in hoodoos, canyons, and ravines in the bentonite badlands. "An Eye for Texas," provides substantive information about all the topics Gary explores. For example, did you know bentonite is used to make kitty litter?
