As we have been exploring the area in and around St. Anthony, NL this week, we have noticed painted stones in various places — on picnic tables, under chairs, along hiking trails.
My curiosity finally got the better of me today and I asked someone in a local shop “what’s up with the painted rocks?”
She told me that they are part of The Rock Art Hunt, an activity of the upcoming Iceberg Festival. People have been asked to paint rocks and leave them around town. If a person finds a rock, they can keep it or hide it again.
When we spotted them on our hikes today, it never occurred to me that I might be able to take one home as a souvenir! I did, however, take a few pictures!
Now I know what to do the next time I see one!
