The Best Odd Shaped Boulder in Joshua Tree

Over the years I've posted photos of boulders that look like just about every animal I can think of. Here is a new one. To me, it's the best one I've ever seen. I can't even really describe it properly.
The hairdo, beard, eyebrows, and nose are great. The whole face is comical. I'm trying to ignore the rear end...

Looks like an old dude trying to walk on all fours.

trav4adventures said...

Very strange, indeed!!!!!

Pat Tillett said...

Alex J. Cavanaugh - Yeah it does, and he's really in an unflattering position.

trav4adventures - Strange and comical!

Wayne said...

I fart in your general direction? I really like the face. Some sort of troll-elephant thing.

Pat Tillett said...

Wayne - Monty Python! You know, it really does look a troll.

Kaya said...

When I read your description of this animal; I smiled. Pat, I saw his yes, his comical face, his eyebrows. He is a little bit awkward but otherwise is great! Wonderful photograph!!!

visualnorway said...

Somebody must have been on Easter Island! Or perhaps the other way around :-)

Brian said...

Dang, that dude is stoned!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Now that's a face! So strange

William Kendall said...

Quite a cross face, too!

Pat Tillett said...

Kaya - Awkward is a good word for this guy. I started laughing out loud when I saw him.

visualnorway - Yep! I have a photo around here somewhere of a rock, that REALLY looks it belongs on Easter Island. I have to find it.

Brian - Very Stoned! That's funny Brian.

Pat @ Mille Flori Favoriti - Yep, he is very strange. Thanks for the comment Pat.

William Kendall - I know! This guy has a little bit of everything in his look.

Thanks for coming by! Wishing you and your family a happy Valentine's day:)
Already before I read your text I thought, these look like two faces - one on each side. As a painter I deal with this all the time -once a person sees "something" in a certain part, they can't see anything else in it after that:)

When you put a sea shell to your ear you can hear the ocean. I wonder what you'd hear if you put your ear to the hole on the back end of that rock...

Pat Tillett said...

jeannettestgermain - that's funny, I didn't even mention that I saw a face in back part. I thought it was too obscure, and a sure sign of my run-away imagination.

Tim Hendrik - HA! That's funny! I hope it wouldn't be a rattlesnake.

DEZMOND said...

it does look like a face, an angry one!

Francisca said...

LOL! I don't know what's funnier - your stoneman or the comments.

James said...

Very cool! I see two faces looking in opposite directions.

I just spent some time catching up on your blog. I really enjoyed seeing and reading about the interesting places you visit. It was sad to read about your health issues. You seem to be doing well tough. Thanks for the virtual road trips and best wishes! :-)

Liz said...

Love it!

Betsy Adams said...

Happy Valentine's Day to you and your loved ones. We are enjoying this special day in Arkansas at our special little cabin on the mountain!

Interesting boulder... Did you give him a name?? Ha
Hugs,
Betsy

mshatch said...

I think it's cool.

Pat Tillett said...

DEZMOND - If not angry, at least very stern.

Francisca - I know! I need to gather all the odd boulders into a single post. There is one in the JT area that looks JUST like a cat!

James - My pleasure. James. Hopefully, all the health issues are behind me. If not, I'll just keep doing what I do anyway. Thanks for the nice words.

Liz - Me too Liz!

Betsy Adams - Thanks so much Betsy! Enjoy yourselves. I'll think about a name.

robin andrea said...

That really is quite a cool formation. The face is grand, and that rear end demands that it not be ignored!

Lady Fi said...

I see the face and figure too! Wonderful.

Pat Tillett said...

robin andrea - Very cool! It is quite a rear end, that is for sure.

Lady Fi - I love finding these things. This is the best.

eileeninmd said...

Hello, this is great! I see two faces looking in opposite directions.
It is odd, great find. Thanks for linking up and for the comment.
Enjoy your day and the week ahead!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

The face is quite extraordinary Pat, eyeball and all! I too have enjoyed the hilarious comments above 😀😀

Pat Tillett said...

eileeninmd - Hi Eileen! Very odd! Enjoy your week as well.

PerthDailyPhoto - I can't believe the eye, or the eyebrow. I also love the comments.

sage said...

A neat face!

Should Fish More said...

Are those off the beaten track, Pat?

I should have spent more time there, and would have except for the faulty gas line in the truck camper.

Back to Montana for me tomorrow.

Al said...

Very cool - it makes me think of the statues on the cover of Pink Floyd's The Division Bell album.

Pat Tillett said...

Al - HA! I hadn't thought of that, but if there was another one just like it, it really would.

Nat said...

Brilliant! He looks a bit squashed though :-)

Pat Tillett said...

Nat - Yeah, he does have a few problems!

William Kendall said...

Regarding your question at my blog the other day, a beavertail's a fried pastry in the shape of the beaver tail, with a variety of toppings- cinnamon and sugar is one, for instance, or one can go with chocolate hazelnut or banana, in other cases.

Pat Tillett said...

William Kendall - Thanks William. I've never heard of this before, but it sure sounds good!

sumon tripura said...

Ida said...

This is hilarious. Love it.

Pat Tillett said...

Ida - Me too! One of the funniest things I've seen in a while.

NatureFootstep said...

a face alright, first thing i noted :)

Vid Digger said...

It looks like it's waiting to be kicked, like "Yeah... I deserve it. Just make it quick!" LOL!

Sharon Wagner said...

I'm ashamed to say at first glance the right side was a phallus! Or a mushroom. But yes, I see the face now too. You have so much fun on all your hikes.
