In the last Ice Age the glaciers graciously brought down granite boulders from up north creating glacial erratics in the hills surrounding the city. The majority of the boulders are granite but some are basalt. Most boulders tend to be 6'-8' in height yet the She Bear and Cooper point (Alamo) are highball with 18' top outs! Here is the guide from a couple years ago
