Articles about rocks and other interests of mine.Some will be straight forward articles on rocks – others are humorous. If you have something to contribute please get in touch with me. I am a local retired Nurseryman who loves Plants, Bonsai, Suiseki, rock collecting, lapidary and woodworking.
This site will strive to provide interesting links to rock hounding and articles that involve the Olympic Peninsula of WA. State.
