Erratics are boulders scraped off the bedrock by glaciers and carried by the ice to distant locations. Where this one came from is anyone’s guess, but ‘somewhere north’ is the most probable. They come in all sizes. In this case, it wound up on a high promontory near Dorset in the Haliburton Highlands.

    reminds me of my childhood in connecticut. tons of boulders like these. we’d run off down into the woods to play in the “rock fort” a zig zag splinter of rock left for us to play in by the ice age…
