Trap rock on invisible Round Mountain
Samara Pearlstein (BFA 2008)
Trap rock is a kind of dark, igneous rock. Basalt is a trap rock. Round Mountain used to exist in the Mount Holyoke range in Massachusetts, full of trap rock, but they took it away. We went and looked at the place where there was a mountain and there is no mountain there anymore. That's the trap rock.
