Description
This large block of granite is a relic of the glacial period from three million years ago. Many of these erratics were ice-rafted down the Columbia River from floods caused by the break of a glacial dam in Idaho about ten thousand years ago. In 1905, the rock was moved from the west to the campus by wagon. Now the rock is located in the northeast corner of the garden in front of the Natural Science building.
