There are only two locations in the United States you can hear “Ringing Rocks.”  One is in the Boulder Batholiths, 18 miles east of Butte, Montana (pictured) and the other is in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

Want to learn more about the “Ringing Rocks” east of Butte, Montana? Go to the fascinating Montana website www.formontana.net

Bounce down a gravel road near Stockett, Montana (east of Great Falls) and you will find this wonderful  wooden “Fork in the Road.”  Below is a gallery of the unexpected and quirky Montana items we have stumbled across over the past fifteen years. Most are one of a kind items that someone made with a care and a sense of humor.  Thank you, whoever you are, for the smiles.
