I am putting together a scrap book of photos of the big rock that is always being painted and repainted on Route 85 heading north just after the lake. Most often used to post RIP and happy birthday messages over the years, I have, from time to time, seen some very amusing and/or thought-provoking messages and some great art work. My father tells me that people have been painting the rock at least since he was a kid in the 40's & 50's. I'd be very interested in seeing what others have photographed and are willing to share, and possibly obtaining copies for my collection.

Glen there is a Facebook page to commemorate The Rock and we would love to see any photos you have added to the page. The creator is putting together a history of the rock if you have anything to share. https://www.facebook.com/groups/306827617063/
