Rock mystery unraveled Cocalico Creek artist comes forward

The Ephrata Review asked and Fallon May of Ephrata answered.
Two weeks ago, we published photos of very unique rock structures which had popped up in the Cocalico Creek near the entrance to Tom Grater Park along Cocalico Street. We asked if the artist could come forward and take credit.
May and her family contacted the paper just a few days later.
May, 13, said she and a friend (Cameron), whom she met in the park, happened to see two big rocks in the water one day and just started piling them on top of each other.
"And it just sort of came out," she said.
May said the entire project took about an hour or two to complete. She said she doesn’t remember the exact day they did the project, but she knows they did it during the daylight hours. When The Review took calls from neighbors inquiring about the rocks, none said they ever saw anyone in the water.
"I don’t think anyone saw us doing it," she said. "It was a hot day and I was wearing flip flops. If I had been wearing sneakers, I wouldn’t have went in."
"I’ve always liked piling things up since I was a little girl," she said.
After a visit to the area, and seeing her creation is no longer there, May said she does not know what could have happened to it.
When asked if she has plans to do it again, she said, "Yeah, probably."
"We talked about doing it again," she said. "Even if he (Cameron) doesn’t, I’d like to do it again."
May said they had planned to build a circle around the original design but they ran out of time that day.
"I’d like to do that," she said.
