Balanced Rock

It should probably be called Precariously Balanced Rock as it seems to perch ever so delicately on its matching pedestal in the middle of the Garden of the Gods. Many have speculated on when this rock will finally topple - it has been subject to the extreme Colorado temperatures and to vandalism by humans. After 290 million years this giant stone pulpit hopefully will stand for generations to come. All the same, plan your visit for sooner rather than later...
