Near Springfield in Clark County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
A Relict from an Icy Past
Sometimes, single boulders were dropped haphazardly. These boulders are called glacial erratics and are a familiar sight in glaciated portions of Ohio. Some glacial erratics traveled from as far away as Ontario, Canada. Geologists suspect that may be the case for this several-ton chunk of granite.
