The Unofficial
I-26 Construction
Madison County
North Carolina


As you drive south on I-26 one day, when you pass through Buckner Gap look on the right side at the rock slope. This unusual rock formation will be there near the base of the slope (it may be behind the rock fence and hard to see) near the middle of the cut. How did this totally different type of rock get into this narrow crack so long ago? This formation is over 10' long and about 1"-2" wide, and there are several of them. Photo taken in October 2000.
