You could say that Tammy Shelton of Yakima rocks. But she actually paints rocks and hides them around Yakima hoping you'll find one and smile. Shelton is part of a large group of rock painters called Yakima Valley Rocks. They spend time painting encouraging words on rocks and then hide them all over Yakima. "We put on the back of the rock if the rock is found if they would post a picture of it in the Facebook page Yakima Valley Rocks and then they have the option of keeping it or re-hiding it which ever they choose."
Shelton says the rocks can be found at parks and around hospitals and stores. They're all painted with positive words and she hopes they inspire you and put a smile on your face.
