Outdoors Wednesday, Split Rock and more

Some time ago I'd shared a photo of this split rock from my archives.  On this recent country journey, as I saw this coming up along the highway I found a place to pull in and get an updated version.

looks like it had a good innings

you come across the best names often when out on the open roads, I could've been pulling up many times to take a pic but this one I remembered seeing on the 'going' part of my trip, and so I kept an eye out for it on the way back home again.

Great countryside.

What an interesting rock. We have a lighthouse on Lake Superior in Minnesota that's called Split Rock Lighthouse. But it's not sitting on a split rock like this.
I like the Willy Wally Gully sign.

Carol, I love the rock formation and your interesting tree.
The Willy Wally Gully sign is too funny.:-D)
Thanks for your comments on my blog.
BTW...to answer your question: The opening is merely a vent. It gets hot here in Georgia,USA.
Oh...not only am I follow you but added you to my Blogs I Love list. Hope you get many more visitors/followers!

Just beautiful, Carole! That split rock is awesome! I don't know if the tree is actually growing in the middle, but the appearance that it is is wonderful. The landscape is gorgeous.
