There are certain natural occurrences and organic structures in the world that leave us all scratching our heads. One such natural wonder is Kummakivi, a geological formation found in the dense forests of Finland. The mystifying sight is that of a giant rock performing an unbelievable balancing act on a seemingly smooth, curved mound. There is still no scientific explanation for how the rock, whose given name translates as "strange rock" in Finnish, has wound up in such a perplexing position, but doesn't it look amazing?

  • Oh please. The rock was left in that position by a glacier during the last ice age. This rock and others like it are known as "glacial erratics". It's easy to see the glacial striations still in evidence underneath the rock (glacial striation refers to the marks left by glaciers moving over a hard surface).
