Strange Rock Behavior

11 Oct

Bongo sniffing a pile of rocksThere 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.

Bongo sniffing another pile of rocks

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.

    I’ve heard of rock climbing. I didn’t know it meant rocks were climbing!! Yikes. I hope they don’t climb into my window. I’m learning a lot here, B.

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, you might want to keep your window closed for awhile.

    Loony stones! You’re right, Bongo, on the last one. It’s like a green monster sticking out its tongue!!! 🙂

      Marina, you never know what a rock will come up with. Or was it the cactus’ idea?

      Benny & Lily, we have lots of artist’s here, but I think most of them are too busy doing art to stack rocks. There are lots of other people that like to stack them though.

    I didn’t know that rocks are mischivous! or the cactus is, too? 🙂

      Kevin, cactus can be very mischievous, they like to stick their pricklers in you when they get the chance. But I didn’t know rocks were mischievous either. Maybe when the cactus and the rocks get together they get each other going.
