Lunar Rock

This propped boulder sits along a hilltop overlooking the lower beaver bonds.  Its shape is similar to that of a Bull Frog or possibly a Snail.

Covered in snow the eyes of the Bull Frog can be seen on the top center of the boulder.

This stone is partially propped. This photo shows the bottom center edge making contact with the ground. To the left is an open space (see bottom photo) and to the right is where the Pink Quartz stone is positioned.IMG_5739Here is evidence of a fire at one point. Sot covers the lower portion of stone. Is this another example of thermalling? Smaller stones surround the base with this and many other boulders in the area. Are these the potential tools used to create the boulder? Possibly stones left in memorial from years of pilgrimages and celebrations? For the some the simple explanation is time and weather but those pieces tend to be obvious, lying broken shards in the ground.
