See What Erosion Can Do!

These rocks have been there for quite a while. But it does seem highly unlikely that they were the results of erosional forces. You need to look at the right hand side of the big brown rock at the smaller balanced rocks in the background. All of these formations were caused by the almost imperceptible work of wind, water and ice. Even though I have seen hundreds of balanced rocks in walking and driving around the country, I am still amazed at the fact that they can even exist. This is the Toadstool formations of Southern Utah, almost on the border with Arizona.
