On Sunday, I hit the trails with my mom and Denali to check out Tripod Rock at Pyramid Mountain.
Tripod Rock is a glacial erratic boulder, estimated to be approximately 127 metric tons. It sits balanced on three smaller stones, as it was originally transported to the spot by a glacier.
Aside from the rocks, we crossed paths with two garter snakes and a couple toads. Other hikers warned us about a pair of bears in the area, but we didn’t see them.
All in all, a great weekend of hikes. Can’t wait to see where next weekend takes us!
