Legend has it that the Great Spirit made the rock rise from the ground to save the girls who were chased by the bears. There were different versions of the story which became part of the Native American’s folklore. In the scientific aspect, the strangely formed rock is believed to be a by-product of an igneous intrusion that happened millions of years ago.

Whether you believe in the legend or accept the scientific explanation, you cannot deny the fact that this gigantic rock is a sublime piece of nature.
