Friends took me to hear and see the ringing rocks of Montana. I had never heard of, nor seen, such a thing.
Ringing Rocks, a natural phenomenon, is located between Butte and Whitehall, Montana. It is as though God had spilled a bucket of boulders on top of a small mountain. Tumbled upon each other, these boulders sound like metal anvils when lightly tapped with a hammer. I could even produce the metallic quality when tapping the rocks with my fingernails. The tones change as you climb the heap of boulders and/or tap different parts of an individual rock.
The road to Ringing Rocks is dirt and deeply grooved. We were able to maneuver part way up the mountain side and had to walk the rest of the way. Vehicles with higher clearance were able to make it to the top.
There are no facilities and no phone reception. Be sure to pack a sufficient amount of water with you. There is plenty of sunshine in the high desert. Also, be sure to bring a hammer to play music on the rocks.
