After untold millennia of glacier surfing, this big rock is taking a quick, 12,000-year break.

Geologists believe a boulder located in a mobile-home park just off Edmonds Way is an "erratic," a stone deposited in the area by glaciers during the ice age.

Looking at the rock -- roughly 12 feet high by 10 feet wide by 15 feet long -- "erratic" would seem to be a misnomer.
