Have you been walking around El Paso & you see a brightly colored rock that has Pikachu on it? Or a Disney character on it? Chances are that you have & there's a reason. Many artistic & creative souls in El Paso have been painting rocks & hiding them around town. All for the sake of exploring around town & having fun. And we can thank Facebook for that.

This is a Facebook group dedicated to showing off beautiful El Paso rocks.

The biggest group dedicated to this little hobby is called "El Paso Rocks!" Just a quick dive on the page, you'll be greeted with rocks that look like this:

And there's a very good reason why people from El Paso are taking the time to show off these amazing decorations.

The group was actually started (in 2017) by the father of one of the admins, a man named Klaus Hille. He started the page after visiting family in Alabama. While on this trip, his family took a walk where his granddaughter found a rock pained like a lady bug. His daughter, Krista Brooker, then took over the page to help spread the kindness & to help make people's days one rock at a time, by painting rocks & hiding them all over town.

It's a little hard finding the original post (as there are SO MANY now) but here's a screen on what those first rocks looked like.

Over 6 years later, this single group alone now has over 23k members, with many more sharing photos of their personal creations & where they hide them for people to hunt for. You never know what you'll find... like a piece of pizza (don't bite into it!)

I want to give a huge thank you to not only the admins of El Paso Rocks but the people who were nice enough to share THEIR photos so we can admire these amazing works of art. So next time you're out & about, keep a look out! You might just find a treasure buried in the desert.
