The First Boulders consist of the boulders at the very bottom of the boulderfield. These will be the first boulders you come to as you're hiking up the stream. Though not necessarily a destination, this is a great place to warm up before heading higher on the hill. Also, if your time is short, it's a good place to get a quick workout without committing to a longer hike.
Walk up the stream. About three quarters of the way up to the Yellowjacket Boulder, you'll see the Stream Boulder on your left, with its classic First Impressions problem. Up behind the Stream Boulder, you'll see the Log Boulder.
