Crushed granite is a rare stone that was once quarried from the Southwestern United States and New Mexico.
It is a stone that is highly resistant to erosion, and if left in the ground can withstand temperatures up to 5,000 degrees.
A recent study showed that it can withstand the effects of the Great Salt Lake’s intense heat.
The saltwater will eventually freeze and break apart into gravel and sand, leaving behind a rich mineral deposit.
“We are very lucky to have this stone in the United States,” said Chris Hensley, the founder of Mountain Mountain Gems, a nonprofit that specializes in preserving crushed granite.
“It’s not as easy to find in other parts of the world, but when you do, it’s very hard to find.”
Hens.s. mountain gem collection is among those that are in high demand.
The gravel bike was the only way to get the stone on the road back in 2006, after a trip to a quarry in New Mexico with friends and family.
“They had the stones on a motorcycle, and they just dropped it off and drove to Utah,” said Hensly.
“The next day they brought it back and said ‘We’ve got this on our way.’
It was so beautiful.
It’s hard to imagine what the price would have been, but we did have to pay $4,000 for it.
That’s just amazing.”
The road to a gravel bike is a long one.
Hens and his family had to find a way to bring the stones back from a quarry and transport them back to New Mexico for preservation.
“A lot of them are very difficult to get back and the price for that kind of thing is so high,” said his father, Mike.
“I would have paid anywhere from $15,000 to $50,000 just to get that thing back.
It was the most expensive piece of granite we have ever found.”
Hins.s father, Chris Hinsley, says it was a long road to get his grandson Matt to ride the gravel bike, which was crushed by the Great Lakes’ winds and a sandstorm.
“If I could have given Matt a ride I would have given him a ride, but I could not do it,” he said.
“Matt has been riding for about 15 years and he’s been a great rider, he has a good attitude and has been able to learn a lot.”
The Hensleys have made a point to find out the history of the gravel, and the history that is lost to the sands.
They want to preserve what they have and not just the history, and that’s why they started the Matt’s Rock and Gravel Club.
The club started out in 2014 as a way for the Hens to have a fun time with their grandchildren.
They also want to get Matt to learn about the history and what they call the “fairy tales.”
Matt has been very open to that, said Hinsly.
When his grandfather died he wrote a letter to his mother asking for help, and Matt wrote back saying, “Thank you, Mom and Dad.
You have made me realize that we don’t need to be buried in the grave.”
Matt Hens is a great friend to his parents, and he has been a huge advocate for the club.
The Hins also have been to many festivals and the local golf course, and Hens says he is glad to be able to take Matt to the course.
“He has really enjoyed the club, and I think he would be really happy in the club if we had more people,” said Mike.
Matt has a passion for his hobby, and in the past he has even given his father a ride.
He said he would love to get another ride from the gravel.
“Any of the things we do together is what keeps the road going,” said Matt.
“So we have a lot of fun, and there’s nothing better than a great time.”
Matt’s rock and gravel club was a perfect fit for the family, and it’s a family effort.
“All the members of the family have been really supportive and have been very supportive of the club,” said John Hensby, Matt’s grandfather.
“This has been their little family for over 20 years, and we want to be part of that.”
Matt is now going through a few changes in his life.
He is a high school senior now, and is a part of the team at Mountain Mountain Gem.
“As a new grad, I am going to be taking over the staff at the club as a junior,” said Jake Hens by phone.
“My grandfather is retired and is now running the club.”
Jake Hinsby has been the executive director of Mountain Rock and Rock for several years and has known Matt for years.
“When I saw Matt was going through his changes, I knew it was time to get in touch with Matt,” said
