Rocks and texture

with 10 comments

Oh give me rocks along with texture
And then I won’t incline to vexture.*

I took both pictures in Glacier National Park, Montana, the first on August 30th and the other the next day.

* When I searched for vexture in the dictionaries front-ended at OneLook.com, I got asked: “Did you mean: venture, texture, vesture, vecture, vetture, feature, gesture, overture, fixture, lecture, vulture, mixture, verdure, denture, venturi, ventura, aventure, velure, voiture, ventre, esture, vettura, textury, ventuse, textura, vestire, vetere, vettore, vertue?”

No, I really meant vexture. In a separate Internet search I found an instance of someone else using the word: “And curse the mud with vain veritable vexture.”

In any case, each of the links in the OneLook.com response is active, so you can click to pursue as many of the obscure words there as you’d like. I invite you to use some of them in your own communications to see how much esture you can create.
