Balanced Rock trail

Balanced Rock trail

The rock really is this color on the eastern ledge at Devil's Lake. It is quartzite which is made by great pressure and heat being applied to sandstone, which of course, was originally sand. The formations were probably formed 1.6 billion years ago making them some of the oldest formations in North America. This shot was taken on my way down as it got very windy, cloudy then started to rain just as I reached the parking lot. Great timing!
