Für immer und ewig
Forevermore. These granite boulders, already rounded by glaciers, receive further sanding in the creeks of Kings Canyon. The water grinds every single mineral of these rocks to sand. Finally the sand is washed into the ocean and accumulates in sediments. Anytime the drifting sea-floor is subucted the plate gets remolten and the rock cycle closes. In 300 to 500 million years the sand of this creek can form into a new mountain range.
