A river rock is causing quite a bit of talk in this mountain community. That is because on it there is a mark that has an uncanny resemblance to Elvis Presley. The hair, the sideburns and the collar all point to the King of Rock. LaDell Alexander was the one to find it.
"I'm kind of a rock hound," she said. She bought the rock, which weighs around 23 pounds, a while back in Colorado not noticing the image it carried. "When I got home and was rinsing it off, I could see something in the rock," Alexander recounted, "And there's Elvis, plain as day, because when it's wet the black hair really stands out."
Alexander and her husband, Lynn, live in Texas, but vacation in Estes Park during the summer. That is where the "Elvis Rock" resides now and has started to attract attention. George Frawley owns a bed and breakfast near the Alexanders and visited their house Tuesday to have a look. "It is the real thing!" Frawley exclaimed. "I don't want to get too excited, but this is big stuff."
The Alexanders plan to put the rock on eBay and donate 10 percent of whatever they get to a charity linked to the Elvis Presley Trust.
