Details

This is a Sunday and I am hiking the day with my son, so these hikes will be rated easy, but yet fun. This first stop totals about .125 miles......lol.... not really a hike.

Driving through the desert community of Congress, Arizona on highway #89 you will see a group of rocks that look like a frog. I mean really look like a frog -- and it has been painted in froggy green ever since 1928! A woman named Sara Perkins, a homesteader's wife, observed that this particular rock, when viewed from the proper angle, resembled a frog. She painted it and it has become quite the landmark ever since. Painting a 60-ton frog-looking rock is not an easy task, but the town's folk of Congress have kept it green to this day!
