There are a lot of rocks on my trails.
Big rocks and little rocks. Rock mountains and boulders.
Mostly they just hang out where they are.
Well, sometimes a bunch of tiny rocks will gang up on my person and slip right out from under her foot.
There’s one trail that she won’t let me take her down at all when it’s dry because it’s full of little rocks that like to do that to her.
But today, I found a few rocks doing something different.
They decided to see how high they can get.
I found two piles of rocks right next to each other.
Come to think of it, I saw some of those piles on our hike the other day – on different trails.
And my person says she’s seen piles in other places too.
So why are these rocks doing this?
Are they trying to top the next rock by seeing who can climb the highest?
Are they trying to get all the rocks to join them so they can become part of a rock wall?
Maybe they’re playing a new game. You know, like pig pile on – only it’s rock pile on.
Just when I was about to give up trying to figure out what these rocks are up to, I came across another rock.
And this rock had really strange behavior.
I mean, who would purposely stick themselves into a cactus.
Usually it’s the cactus that sticks itself into someone.
Oh wait, now I get it. That cactus is sticking.
It’s sticking out its tongue.
