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. Hoover Wilderness

Well, 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.

Here's the view from our place in Boulder:Oh, you meant boulders....sorry. ;-)
Eagle Creek Trail durning my PCT thru-hike last year...right after Tunnel Falls !
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.See http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wedgwood_Rock
Dale,if it wasn't for those three trees, that wedgwood rock would have kept riding the glacier slide to Mexico ;)
From the Rim of the Gap trail in South Carolina...How would you like to have been standing on the trail when this sucker broke loose and rolled down the hill?!?From the Middle Fork of Taylor Creek in Kolob Canyons.
You never know whos watching.

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.
