Painted rocks are appearing in strange places all over the northwest! Remnants of a lost civilization? Evidence of alien life? Or maybe it's just a group of crafty ladies.

Ok, it's the crafty ladies. A group called "Bothell Rocks" just organized a couple months ago...and they're now 900 strong.

They paint, then hide rocks in parks, on benches, in shopping areas, anywhere anyone can find a treasure.

They then encourage others to do likewise.
