Forest Mystery Face
This boulder lies just to the east of Crow Butte along a game trail. Whether this is a natural occurrence or not is not known. A similar photo of this appeared on the back page of Nebraskaland magazine.

Coming around a curve on the game trail and seething this had a nearly equal effect as seeing a giant. We were speechless at first.

I've seen similar rocks here in Idaho. They were formed on a fast-flowing river bottom where a smaller rock gets in a depression and swirls around like a mortar and pestle, slowly grinding out a round cove-like hole. My friends who live on a white water river here in Idaho hauled a large one out and used it for a chair.

That's an interesting observation. In reference to the canyons of the Seven Sisters Range 75 miles north of Crow Butte, geomorphology.com stated this about stuff carved by water "These canyons and through valleys were not eroded by present day drainage networks, but provide evidence of an immense southeast- and south-oriented flood responsible for eroding the deep northeast-oriented Cheyenne River valley headward around the Black Hills south end.”

Perhaps these were the same forces that carved this?

gorillas have no artistic talent!

Yeah, those gorillas do better work than some of the stuff that passes for art these days.

Reminds me of any photo taken of a Sasquatch -- the photos are always out of focus, and I
think the photographer does this purposely to
give a "mysterious flavor" to the beast.

Was this your technique ?

Nebraskaland magazine's November, 2007 issue has a better quality photo of the rock for any who would care to see it. Sorry my photo quality was not great, but it's the only one I have to show what the rock looked like that our hiking group encountered that day. It's something worth seeing if you ever climb Crow Butte. The photo was taken 9 years ago with an old point-and-shoot camera I had then. I hope this helps address your question.
