More European Propped Boulders

Norman Muller writes:
I have to agree with your statement that the laws of probability dictate that not all of the propped boulders in Foxboro State Forest can be explained by glacial activity.

Attached are some examples of propped and pedestaled boulders from Europe: several from Sweden

and an example from Russia, along Gulf of Finland. To me, none of these can be explained as a result of the glacier. Obviously the one from Russia is a human construct.

[PWAX - These examples are more dramatic than the ones I found in Foxborough but the one in North Salem NY is pretty equivalent to the European ones (here is a nice photo of it). And here is a nice one from Dogtown in Gloucester by Dan Boudillion.]
