Ringing Rocks

Yesterday a group from Mt. Ellis Academy went to Ringing Rocks, a few miles northwest of Whitehall, MT. That sounded like something that would be more fun than hanging around the house watching snow disappear, so we went, too.

The farther west we got from Bozeman, the less snow there was on the ground. By the time we reach Whitehall the ground was dry and the air balmy.  Ringing Rocks is a huge pile of rocks with little nooks and crannies and tunnels around the jumble. But the unique and surprising thing was the metalic tone made when the rocks are struck with a hammer or other hard object.

Here’s a little video I made from the area pictures.
