I just love serendipity like that. There is frog rock close to Tulsa, not near as big as your rock though.

Interesting frog! It reminds me of a big beaver sculpture I photographed last August when passing through a small northern town.

How fun!! What a surprise that must be to unsuspecting souls driving along State Route 89! I love the imagination that people have to create these random works of art and the dedication it takes to see that they are kept in good shape.

Cool! Thanks for sharing. I saw a rock in a Massachusetts state park, Massasoit, that I swear looks like a dog. It is right on the road in the park going to the campground.

Much lie the polar bear here in the driest hills around. Amazing what paint will do.

Gaelyn, that was a buck kangaroo, the one crouching was the female.

How wonderful. In an area filled with huge boulders it's nice to see a bit of whimsy from time to time.

That's cute. I'd keep painting him, too.

My WV is 'hograt'---any hog or rat rocks?

Thanks for checking out my blog while I was "vacation". It's good to be back and I really appreciate the kind thoughts for my mother.
