Considering frequent earthquakes in California, you would think this rock would roll right down into the second lake of the Big Pine Creek. I've been watching it for the past thirty years, but I'm sure it has been sitting there for the past ten thousand years when the last ice age ended.

Re: very cool

Thank you Katie

It did take me a little while to figure out how boulders such these get there.

It looks like it could turn

into a "rolling stone" at a moment's notice!

You really have some great pictures, Marc!!

Popular boulder

That's a popular boulder. It's been photographed a lot. I believe a few people have even attempted to trundle the thing.

Re: Popular boulder

I hope no one would even try to trundle it.
I like it to stay just where it is for another 10,000 yrs.

That'll fix it. No more watching for the next thirty. Actually, I love erratics and this is a great example of one.

Re: Dynamite

To tell you the truth, Dean, I don't mind watching this guy for another thirty. I would love to be able to do the six mile hike for another 30.
Thanks for checking it out,
