Petersen's Rock Garden
This week I went to Central Oregon to visit my Grand Daughters. Near their house is The Petersen's Rock Garden. It was a perfect place to take the kids for an afternoon romp to burn off some steam.
Aunt J decided she need to be Miss Liberty.
She has a cat named Liberty, coincidence? I think not.
They even have a little gift shop filled with antiques and rock stuff. There was even a room with a black light display. The kids loved to watch their clothes light up.
Over in the corner of the gift shop, was a little play area. You know kids stay here while parents wander. Do you see anything wrong with this picture?
As it turns out, they were cleaning out a storage area, and it wasn't a play area.
The Garden sits on 4 acres, but the museum and rockery are all bunched together and is easy to walk around. With bridges and ponds, miniature castles, and walkways, it keeps the kids amused and offers opportunity for home school geology.
There was even a horse in the field that just wandered around with no fences. A cute little lamb, and peacocks in full bloom made for a very enjoyable afternoon.
