The high knocker, Mountain View Cemetery

knocker

This knocker can be hard to find. It’s two roads up from Millionaires’ Row and to the south, but its bay-facing side is obscured by trees. I took this photo in 2003; today I could barely see it from the road, and I knew where to look. It’s mostly chert. I’m calling it the high knocker because it’s the tallest one in the cemetery; at least two others are higher on the hill.

If you approach this rock, beware of poison oak.

    What is it about chert and poison oak? Ring mountain is the same. All the knockers have a little… but the chert has a lot.
