An Erratic. February 8, 2012

Somewhere along the ridgeline north of Route 2, a glacial erratic sits in a deciduous grove.  It’s pretty spectacular, given that it’s all alone out there, a chunk of pristine granite parked a bit above its schistose host stratum:

If you’re a climber/boulderer, there’s plenty to do there to justify the 20 minute approach. I expect half of the possibilities to crack the double digits, which will mean nothing to most of you, but everything to those who “boulder.”

This is the ideal time of year to go there; no bugs, the sodden approach is stiff as a mackerel, and no bugs.

Did I already say that?  Well, yeah.

How did you find this boulder? So wild to see it all by itself! And again, another awesome picture! Thank you for the post! You inspired me to write another one, not done yet, but in my head!

I’m smitten. Quite a rock.

Yeah, it’s so big we Little People get sucked into orbit around it! 😉

The top of it looks to be a very nice place for a picnic – just so long as there are no bugs.

It’s a bit of a hike with that-sized ladder on your shoulder… 😆

Love the title. I see he had a rock next to him too.
