Ringing Rocks

Once upon a time I picked up a silly book about oddities in Montana, Montana Curiosities: Quirky Characters, Roadside Oddities & Other Offbeat Stuff. Fun little book, with all kinds of silly, neat places to visit. One of the fun things that’s really close to us is the Ringing Rocks outside Whitehall, Mt. It’s only about a 20 minute drive down the freeway and then up a dirt road. So why not? 
What are ringing rocks? well they are some rocks with a weird geological feature. When you hammer on them they make more of a bell tone that rings, as opposed to just a “bonk” or a “tink” from the hammer.
So back in March, While Paul’s mom was visiting us we made a family trip out there. It was pretty neat, the rocks certainly made different noises, I even took some videos, but the sound quality is very poor and you can’t really hear the pings and pongs. 
There was also lots of rocks available for Paul to climb on. Because that’s what boys do, right?  

Oh my gosh E was so tiny 6 months ago!
