share your boulders on 06/23/2014 13:06:06 MDT Print View

We've had theme threads for trees, leaves, the JMT, fish, dogs, other critters, lakes, heavy packers.... but I didn't see any for weirdly-shaped rocks. So let's have one.

oakcreekWell, it's not from a backpacking trip but here is a snap I took of the iconic rectangular boulder from the West Fork Oak Creek trail in Sedona while on a day hike.

Seattle is basically built on a pile of glacial till. I live on a 300' hill that is topped with hard packed silt left by the last glacier about 14,000 years ago. This huge erratic known as Wedgwood Rock is about a mile from my house.

Dale,
if it wasn't for those three trees, that wedgwood rock would have kept riding the glacier slide to Mexico ;)

Out here in WASHington, we like our boulders clean, so we park them in rivers :)

We were day hiking in the rain and the trail met the South Fork of the Snoqualmie River to give this downstream view of river, rocks and mist.
