Description

El Gordo Flaco is the largest of the Three Brothers at Melrose. It is actually the largest boulder in the area. Legend has it that local Native Americans, at one time used this and other similar sites in North county as ancestral fertility rituals sites.
This Mini Megolith looks impressive from far but upon closer inspection, one will find only Two worth while TR and/or Awesome high balls!
