Erratic Glossary of Hiking Terms
Erratic or Glacier Erratic: is a piece of rock that has been carried by glacial ice, often hundreds of kilometres. Characteristic of their massive size and improbable looking placement. Erratics are frequently seen around Whistler and Garibaldi Provincial Park. Either as bizarre curiosities or a place to relax in the sun. On a sunny day, a large sun-facing erratic will often be warm and sometimes even hot, providing a comfortable and surreal place to rest. The image below is an erratic next to Russet Lake.
This erratic is located beside one of the Adit Lakes near Russet Lake in Garibaldi Provincial Park, Whistler.
The erratic below sits next to the amazing Wedge Hut at Wedgemount Lake. Such bizarrely located erratics are numerous in Whistler and Garibaldi Park.
