This rock is easily recognized by its stately shape and unusual red color. The object of many visitors' pointed cameras, this rock becomes more than it appears at first glance. Possessing one of four Energy Vortexes in the area, this is a highly popular attraction. Located near the Bell Rock Inn whose rooms offer incredible views, this rock possesses energy of the "active" type, which spirals up, encircling you. Experiment sensing this energy while on the rock by first briskly rubbing your hands together, then hold your palms first upward with arms outstretched, then downward, feeling the invisible forces at work either lifting or pushing down.
