The residential gravel Boulder Road ended at small parking lot with two other cars. No boulder in sight, but there was a large gate and an obvious trail into the woods, so off we went.
The walk to the boulder is up a slight rise. At the top of the rise, the boulder suddenly came into view off in the distance.

We all were mesmerized by the boulder and were so glad that we turned back to investigate. We agreed that visiting the boulder was one of the highlights of the four days we spent together in New Hampshire. Are we nerds who need to get a life? I don't care; it was so cool!
(By the way, the image introducing the post has nothing to do with the Madison Boulder. I needed an image of a boulder but I didn't want to "give away" the surprise.)
