The Art (and Fun) of Stacking Rocks

I watched Michael Grab, an artist from Boulder, Colorado, demonstrate his rock stacking technique at the Llano Earth Art Fest. If you missed this unique Texas event earlier in March, plan to attend next year.

Don't know much about rock stacking?

Find out about this ancient activity--including the World Rock Stacking Championship--that is becoming one of man's newest diversions in my article for Texas Highways magazine.

Requiring a combination of discipline, creativity, and acute awareness of variations in natural objects, the activity is fun and challenging for amateurs and has developed into a profession for the country's most talented practitioners. The festival includes opportunities for all ages to try building their own rock structures--and to learn more about the natural resources of the area.
