Who are you calling erratic?

This is a boulder.

It is a limestone boulder.

It is not an outlier. (pronounced OUT-liar. Not OUT-lier as in more out-ly)

No, no, no.

It is an erratic. A glacial erratic, to be precise.

But by any measure, it is a BIG boulder.

I like that boulder.

It is a nice boulder.

  4. I remember learning about “erratics” in Grade 11 Geography. Is that in Cobalt?

    Bermuda, a place we visited last summer, seems to be a 21 mile long chunk of limestone in the Atlantic Ocean. There they pronounce it “limestun”.

  5. Who doesn’t love Donkeh? 🙂 Indiana is a limestone place. I must say, I seldom see a boulder that ISN’T limestone…
