On Little Rocky mountain as soon as the weather gets nice it's time to go outside. The land here is rocky, glacier strewn boulders all around and two stones for every dirt. I hike the woods collecting rocks. I drive around and collect rocks. I've even found big pieces of stone sidewalk in Brooklyn and dragged them back here where they were originally quarried. I stack them, build patios, stairs, walls... and more... There's nothing like lifting a big rock only to discover a snake coiled and bothered. After building with stone-any voids will soon be homes to small animals. Oh what fun!
