One day we took a short drive to see Balance Rock. It is south of Buhl in the Salmon Falls Creek Canyon. Standing over 48 feet tall and 40 tons, the wind-carved rock balances precariously on a pedestal only 3 feet by 17 inches. Until recently, Balanced Rock had a companion - a similar, but much smaller balanced rock named "Chip Off The Old Block", which fell during the winter of 1975/1976. Balanced Rock Park is an excellent spot for a picnic and can be seen from the park's main road. There is also a short loop trail leading around the base of the rock. We actually did have a picnic lunch there one day compared it to the balance rock at Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, CO.
