This glacial erratic rests in aptly named Glacier Gorge in Rocky Mountain National Park. How long has it been there? How long might it be before it's gone? The most recent glaciation across North America was the Wisconsin (also known as the Pinedale glaciation in the Rockies), which lasted from 70,000 to 10,000 years ago.
