This undated photo a large boulder off of Middle Road is on the east side of Middle Rd a little south of Otter View Drive.  It really stood out back when the landscape was so open and empty at the time the photo was taken.  Now you hardly notice it as you drive by. 

After the last glacier receded roughly 10,000 years ago, Clarendon was left with some permanent reminders, this boulder being one, of how it shaped our landscape. Boulders like this are termed glacial erratics.  Found here is a wikipedia explanation of glacial erratics.
