Rockhounds come from all over the United States to sniff out thundereggs, fossils, agate and malachite in central Oregon. From one man's whimsical rock fantasy to nature's own fantastic gardens, you'll find some of the most dazzling displays of stone-cold beauty in Crook, Deschutes, and Jefferson counties. The thunderegg, Oregon's official state rock, is the primary prize sought by rockhounds. Bring your comfortable clothes because the work can be hard, but the rewards are memorable in this rock lover's paradise.
