Too bad there's none on the east side, but I go back home west pretty often. I'll have to keep an eye out for it.

Maybe somebody who lives by some will see this and chime in...

Also I'll ask the GSAS group via Airstone! Somebody will know!

I have been looking in local streams, but I live in kitsap county and there aren't many places here.... It sucks, got some nice rocks though, one place in my tank looks like the lion kings pride rock haha

I've seen it growing along hwy 101. Haven't spotted any in king county yet.

Madrona is a good substitute though and related to Manzanita anyway, and grows everywhere throughout king/other counties. Works better in larger tanks IME.

Madrona is plentiful and very similar. Thinking about doing a large planted tank with madrona and Basalt from the Ellensburg area, tons of quartz marbled in the Basalt around that area.

I was able to rock my 75G Mbuna tank with Black Basalt right out of my inlaws front yard. You can throw a rock in most areas and hit it over here. Hoping to collect some Manzanita or Madrona on my next trip to Seattle.

Madrona is easy to get in Seattle, discovery park had many. Not sure about manzanita even though its similar I haven't found it locally. I know it's around just not sure where.

I have about a milk crate full of Manzy left. All pre dried and for tanks 20 gallons and under. I use the same wood in all my shrimp tanks. PM me if you guys are still looking for wood. I'm in Issaquah and sometimes travel to Olympia for work.
