Inscription.
Two of the most powerful forces in nature created these unique boulders. Millions of years ago, lava filled with gas bubbles erupted, cooled, and crystallized. Later Ice-Age glaciers carried rocks south from the Yellowstone plateau into todayís Grand Teton National Park.

Boulders provided by the generous donation of Gerald T. Halpin and the Lost Creek Ranch.
