Large "Nut Grinding" Boulder
|This stone resembles a bird,'s head, and is located on the north end of the plateau, facing west towards The Lake, about 1/3 of a mile from what appears to have been a main Native American ceremonial site. What is noticeable is that the stone piles here do not have additional bits and bobs of "donation" rocks, as appear to have been added over time to those in the southern end of this location.|
|This boulder is about 3 1/2 feet tall and about 5 feet in diameter. It is located on the highest spot at the northern end of the "long trail" which can be seen behind the boulder. The animals (Moose, Deer, Bear, Fox, CoyDogs) use the trail regularly. From the trail, one can see the remnant of a small spring in the swale below.|
|Is this a perched boulder or a balanced rock? A curiosity which faces west towards The Lake. There is evidence|
of some pecking. A lot of rocks around the base are studded with garnets and there is a large split boulder loaded with quartz and lots of other shiny bits nearby.
