About the header image: August 1, 2012

This week's header was submitted by Stephanie Force of blog.  Stephanie emailed us earlier in the week to let us know that she had explored Salt Springs State Park in Montrose on a recent weekend.

"I had no idea what I was to find outside the few waterfalls, but what more so caught my attention was a rock full of pennies.  (A superstition thought to bring good luck)"

You can find "Penny Rock" along the Hemlock Trail in the park.  Penny Rock is a large rock above the falls made up of stone layers. Through the years hikers have wedged pennies and other coins in the crevices of the layers. Almost every visible crevice is filled.  You can learn more about "Penny Rock" and Salt Springs Park by visiting

We are passing along this good luck to you and hope you'll do the same by sending us an image that we can use on an upcoming New Header Wednesday.  Our email address is

Because I haven't written much of anything recently, this gave me good motivation to write "Penny Rock", a Tanka Poem. Thank you!!
