14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Balanced Rock in Big Bend National Park

After a 6 mile dirt road drive and a 3 mile hike I discovered on of the most amazing displays of mother nature I've ever seen! In the middle of the desert, atop a boulder mountain is a gigantic boulder perfectly balanced between 2 rocks. How did this get here? How long has this been here? Makes me wonder what kind of world was here before humans!
