I've seen a few other erratics in the area, like Big Rock at Okotoks and the buffalo rubbing stone at Nose Hill, but hadn't seen this one before. It was a bit of a challenge getting here. On the map, it looked to be a short distance from the first cache I found today, but there was a freeway in between and we had to detour to find a pedestrian bridge, then navigate through a modern subdivision with many cul-de-sacs.
