[Campbell, 02/13/2010]

Geological protuberance popular with hikers and climbers. Some rock formations have goofy names -- Kissing Camels, Weeping Indian, etc. (all our knowledge on this comes from old postcards). Best rock name: Seal and Bear. It was originally named Seal Making Love To A Nun, but then the publicist who named it was fired.
