I, as well as others I'm sure, are looking for hardscape materials (e.g. rocks, wood, etc.). Preferably found, not bought. Anyone know good places to look?

I saw what looked like a promising spot along I-15 near Temecula (Near Lawrence Welk Resort, really). I haven't stopped yet to pick any up for an acid test, but I will one of these days.

Here's a great site to look at if you like to hike...

http://www.localhikes.com/MSA/MSA_4472.asp

I found some driftwood at Mt. Baldy...but I'm not sure if you will find some their. There, there are some nice rocks, but you have to look hard because there is alotta rocks their. Also, when you find driftwood, try to remember not to fall in. I saw this great driftwood in the middle of the stream and tried to use a big stick to get it, but I fell in . Have fun!

-Jeff

Hey Jeff, how far up Mt. Baldy did you go? I tried there a few weeks ago, but no luck. All the wood I could find was some sort of really soft wood, not good for aquariums. But I didn't search too far up the road.

i donno, but most of the wood were pretty soft. I went there for a hike, but I think I kept going on the trail until there was no trail. By there, I think found a driftwood that was partially hard ,but some soft. Everytime I go hiking, I would get excited when I see driftwood. Mostly, you don't really see driftwood if you go on a hike. I went there in the winter, I think there were more wood there in the winter?
