Knocker 1 revisited

In my latest serious walk through Mountain View Cemetery, I passed the first bedrock knocker I documented here as “my secret chert.” It’s no longer secret.

Click the photo for the big version. The cemetery managers have been removing eucalyptus for some time, which I thoroughly approve. Eucalyptus isn’t a good cemetery tree: it’s messy, lanky, disruptive and incompatible with turf. But Franciscan chert is a good cemetery rock: it’s strong, silent, dignified and unfazed by anything. Anyway, now knocker 1 gets to bask in the sun again, and maybe its new visibility will gain it new friends.
