EMPS #22: Rocks or Stones
EMPS #22: ROCKS or STONES.
Grab your cameras and show me some ROCKS. Big ROCKS, little ROCKS. LittleROCK, Arkansas, STONE soup. A Zen garden with decorative ROCKS, or how about ROCK cliffs? Sure, why not!

Extra Credit: Show an actual ROCK or STONE in an unusual or special place.
