These Little Geologic Gems Are Oregon’s Pride And Joy And You Can Find Your Own
Oregon’s state tree is the Douglas Fir, its state animal is the beaver, and its state nut is the hazelnut. All of these are pretty commonly-known facts for Oregonians, but did you know that we have a state rock? Thundereggs are incredible geologic gems, and Oregon is the most popular place to find them in the U.S.. Find your own at this little rock ranch in Madras.
Do you have some thundereggs of your own? We’d love to see your photos! For more information about Richardson’s Rock Ranch, visit its website, and check out its Facebook page.
