Funky Foto Contest Week 35

Kind of weird looking from this angle, huh? Sort of like a big thumb sticking out of the ground…or a miniature version of El Capitan. Seriously, in this week in particular this rock has some special significance. The question for today’s contest is where is it, and what does it commemorate? This weeks winner will receive a $30.00 gift certificate to Waterfront Pizza in Edgewater Place. The winner and all other correct answers will be published on Monday morning. All humorous (or reasonable attempts at humorous) jokes, semi smart aleky quips and all wrong answers will be published immediately. All the rules of the road are available on the left hand margin as well as on the bar above. Have fun and I hope you have a great weekend!
