Rock Hunting

The men have caught this large granite specimen and are loading it in the back of the pickup truck. They have caught their limit now.  John Scott explained that he noticed this one in the bushes, laying perfectly still, very close to where he had been hiding in waiting . "I didn't even notice this big one beside me. It didn't move at all until I started prodding it with my pry bar." The rock immediately tried to get and away bolted down the hill but the men managed to capture it (without hurting it) and now they are taking it back to the bridge site to give it a new home in the vault they are building.

Rosie is a 'Springer Spandrel'. She is specially trained to sniff out suitable stones for the rock hunters to use in the bridge.
