Globe Rock

Address: North Fork, CA 93604
Website: www.sierravistascenicbyway.com

Looking as if a giant placed this tremendous boulder on the tee for a game of geologic golf and then forgot about it eons ago, Globe Rock is one of the most photographed spots along the byway. Rumor has it that, Theodore Roosevelt had his picture taken at the geological oddity during a hunting trip. Area around Globe Rock was also an area of significance to the local Native American tribes for generations. Many grinding holes can be found nearby. The nearly spherical rock was carved out in-place of the granite thanks to the freezing and thawing action of water on the rocks.
