Photoblog: Collecting, a Pocket Knife & a Field of Rocks

Weekend Journal

Have you ever seen a field of boulders where each rock appears individually carved (as in whittled) in different shapes? Today’s post is a photoblog– a blog of pictures. But before I show you the amazing shapes of the rocks, I have to tell you…

If you don’t know me very well, I started my early collecting days with rocks. As I matured in my collecting preferences, I limited myself to rocks with holes through them- hence my tag line “…having as much fun as I did as a kid collecting rocks.”

My family and I went on a Bouldering trip at Horse Pens 40, one of the most famous sites in the world. It is located about 30 minutes from my house. Also, I equipped myself with an elephant toenail knife (that I never used…but had it nonetheless).

I wanted you to see these rocks for two reasons: The rocks themselves- each looked like it had been hand carved. The second reason is- so you will know I do have a life outside of CNJ and ElephantToenails.com.

These photos were not photoshopped or altered in anyway, other than two crops. Also, I only climbed easy rocks…like rocks I could walk up on.
