This is obviously the work of the White Legs, removal crews should exercise caution.


#3

Gravity moves in mysterious ways.


#4

What do you WANT, Giant Rocks?? Just tell us!


#5

Just waiting to see if there’s a flattened coyote underneath all that…

Zion is one of my favorite places in the world.
The last time I was there, I was woken at 3:30am by the sound of rockfall. Didn’t die. Went back to sleep.


#7

Sweet. New boulder problems.


#8

Wouldn’t it be easier to just grade the road around the rock?
Makes for a new attraction. . . Fallen Rock!
What say ye.


#9

No. There’s perfectly good road under that rock. (mostly, anyway)

Blasting it is the path of least resistance to getting the highway running again.

If only Glenn Taylor and his super friends had been around, they would’ve stopped this!!! In case some people need a reminder: Boy Scout leaders destroy ancient formation.


#11

Behold, the hubris of man!


#12

Giant rocks have always fallen, but they haven’t always closed the highway. Maybe cutting budgets has consequences.


#13

Shazbot!!!


#14

If we only knew the secrets of the ancient megalith builders…

#16

“welp, thats a big ol’ rock, ain’t it?”

“yup”


#17

You have to ask yourself, was this the work of another more advanced, perhaps extraterrestrial Giant Rock??
