Balanced Rock


Balanced Rock is one of those oddities found in every state. The mushroom-shaped rock is some forty feet high and estimated to weigh more than forty tons. It is perched on a sort of triangular base that measures only one foot by one and a half feet by three feet. Geologists who have studied the unusual formation say that it is the result of erosion caused by wind and water.

When will it...? That's a question generations of Idahoans and visitors have asked. So far it hasn't been answered.
