Chuckanut Drive and honeycomb-weathered rock

First, a report about a delightful kayak trip around Chuckanut Bay, south of Bellingham.

They came upon most unusual rocks - that had weathered like honeycomb. The rock was marked by golf ball-sized cavities. They are called trafone (singular) or trafoni. Chuckanut has trafoni large enough to crawl inside.
