If you’re a history or geology buff / nerd in any way, shape or form, you’ll probably find yourself wondering when every single one of these cracks was formed in this Gettysburg boulder, and will probably be fascinated just thinking about all that molten rock rising above the earth's surface in prehistoric days. This particular boulder is located at Devil’s Den, and the picture has some interesting photo bombers . . . the Witness Tree at top left, and Little Round Top’s “castle” monument at center right.
