ESTES PARK, Colo. – Elvis has left the mountains.
Rock collector LaDell Alexander, 60, has found a stone she swears has the face of the rock king Elvis Presley on it and has taken it home and plans to sell it on eBay in August, near the 30th anniversary of his death.
Alexander says "people are calling me the Elvis Rock Lady. Seven out of 10 people see Elvis (on the rock)." She found it last summer while buying rocks last summer. The Coloradoan published a photo of the rock that appears to show the image of a face.
Jessica Blezins, who works for Nature's Own, a store that sells fossils and rocks, said the image is definitely not manmade. "It's definitely natural," she said.
Alexander said she was cleaning the rocks before putting them in her yard when she saw the image and called her husband, Lynn Alexander, 63. "I was about 20 feet away and the first thing I said was that is Elvis," said Lynn Alexander.
The Alexanders have decided to sell the rock and donate 10 percent to one of Presley's foundations.
