Depending on what angle, Balanced Rock may appear as a ball on an bottle or the open lid of a garbage can, opening underneath the Milky Way as we are facing more or less south on a moonless night. What we’ll all agree upon is that it is amazing, as some estimate that the 55 foot tall sandstone boulder topping the stone pedestal weighs about 3500 tons…meaning you don’t want to stand under it during a stiff wind.
