    During our visit to the Integratron we cached our way over to "Giant Rock". This was another awesome sight out in the middle of the desert. Another place worth visiting with jeepin' nearby!

    "The fabled Giant Rock had attracted the first native nomads hundreds of years before settlements rose from the dusty ground. The granite stone and surrounding ground had been held as holy ground by the Native Americans. It is reported that the Hopi knew of this rock and joined other tribes across the desert to convene and celebrate the coming seasons. Shaman drew spiritual strength for the tribes through this rock. It is also said that the magic in the rock represents the heart of Mother Earth. It is also thought to be the world's largest freestanding boulder --- at about seven stories high and covers 5,800 square feet of ground."
