Council RockI featured Council Rock in a post a while ago, but Kali and I stopped by again late last Sunday afternoon. The huge gneiss outcrop stands like a sentinel on the banks of the creek in the county park downstream of my natural area. Local lore holds that Native American Lenni Lenape bands confabbed on or near the rock, hence its name.
