Hey guys, long time no post... Hope all is well with everyone! I haven't been offroading as much these days, though I definitely go hit a trail now and then when I can.

I was curious if anyone has recommendations for a trail or areas to find some good looking rocks to toss in the back of the Jeep to take home to spruce up the yard. (As opposed to our usual search for big rocks to crawl over!) I know there are a million places to grab rocks...but I thought maybe some of you had favorite trails for that....probably a nice easy trail or area close in to SD would be best. Heck, I don't know if it is even legal or not to take home rocks...anyone know? hehe In Hawaii we used to stop and pick up pineapples once in a while when we were throwing parties, but it was a big fine if you got caught so you had to be sneaky about it! hehe

Any rock experts out there? My gf wanted me to also find rocks that I could drill / cut / chisel into or hollow out easily to make little planters for succulents and whatnot. I figure something like lava rock might be good...light, porous for drainage, and probably easier to cut than your standard river rocks. Any good places to find those? I know I could go to one of those landscape / boulder places and buy them, but if you have a Jeep, why would you pay for them?

Hey Scott.

There are lots of exposed lava rocks at superstition but too hot to go there now, unless you really keep an eye on the weather and sneak it in.

I would guess taking anything from public lands is frowned upon. No one is going to miss a couple rocks but I wouldn't talk about it openly.
