A Precarious Boulder Along The Hike To Panther Peak   4 comments

Precarious Boulder — Image by kenne

It is not as unusual as it may seen to see a large boulder resting on another large boulder, they are naturally occurring geological formations. However, when your trail leads right next to one like in the above photo, you step carefully — even more so when a closer inspection shows a crack at the point of balance. I have always been told not to be concerned since they only seem to be balancing, but are in fact firmly connected to a base boulder by a pedestal or stem. That’s by story and I’m sticking to it, not withstanding thoughts of “127 Hours” flashing through my head!
