On the Lighter Side

The Big Rock

The Big Rock was featured in the 2007 Guinness Book of World Records as being the largest glacial erratic in the world!  

The Big Rock has been published on the CyArk website since 2015.  This link offers a 3D replica of the Big Rock, and further information about it. CyArk was founded in 2003 to ensure heritage sites are available to future generations while making them uniquely accessible today.  CyArk operates internationally as a non-profit organization with the mission of using new technologies to create a free, 3D online library of the world's cultural heritage sites before they are lost to natural disasters, destroyed by human aggression or ravaged by the passage of time.

If Walls Could Talk
