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...

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

  5. 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!!!

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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:)

  9. 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...

  10. 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.

  13. 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! :-)

  14. 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,

  15. 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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  17. I see the face and figure too! Wonderful.

  18. 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.

  22. 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.

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

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

  26. Nat - Yeah, he does have a few problems!

  27. 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.

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  33. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Haha that's some face... He looks like a Smurf.

  35. NatureFootstep - Yep! Hard to miss this one.

    Vid Digger - HA! All it needs is a "kick me" sign on it. Did you disable commenting on your blog?
    Sharon Wagner - Don't be ashamed, everybody sees different things. That is kind of funny though! We do have fun hiking, that is for sure.

    Anthony J. Langford - Yep! An angry smurf. Even if you could check, I wouldn't!

  36. I see two distinct things/parts: a half moon face on the left and a fist (or is it poop?)on the right. Nevertheless, it's a curious find.

    Take care, Pat.

  37. Crazy looking rock! Funny how we all seem to find faces everywhere, but can't find our car keys most of the time!

  38. Nature's cartoon! I am thinking lots of things, but can't say any of them. Too funny.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  40. Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com - Your guess is as good as mine Robyn! Thanks.

    Steward M - It sure is! HA! Isn't that the truth.

    Sallie (FullTime-Life) - Nature's Cartoon, that's a good one! I know what you mean, not all of it is G-rates.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Dennis Hodgson - HA! Of course it is...

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hahahaha! That is hilarious! To me, it looks like a snail with an old man's face. With a HUGE nose. That is awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Baby Sister - I never thought of it looking like a snail, but it does! My favorite part is the guy's eyebrows.
