Pipestone National Monument

Quarrying and Peace Pipes

The Pipestone National Monument has 56 sites to quarry for pipestone, or catlinite, which makes pipes. It is very difficult to quarry for the pipestone; you have to dig through soil(which depth ranges from 1-6 feet) and Sioux Quartzite(which depth ranges from 4-10 feet). It is very tedious work because you can only loosen small pieces of Quartzite, and once that's done the pipestone itself is very fragile. If you want to quarry, you should go in the summer or late fall months.

Some wildlife you may want to look out for here are bats, river otters, the northern flying squirrel, and the Prairie Rattlesnake, which is poisonous.

Gram and Gramp's Tips on Places to Go



Yellowstone national park, which is on top of a super volcano overdue for eruption. There has been a thin layer of ash, the same material at Yosemite's crater, found in the western USA underneath modern soil, so that shows how far the last eruption had spread. Scientists also have been able to discover that the next eruption is overdue 40,000 years.
