Photo gallery of erratics

Here is a photo gallery showing the largest 15 erratics from our recent challenge (click here for more info about the challenge).  Over 100 rocks were submitted having a minimum size of 6 feet. The largest erratic (Juanita’s rock) is 36 feet long. In addition, we’ll continue to record any new erratics that are at least 10 ft large.
