  1. Very curious about the fractured boulder. Ice wedging is my first thought too. Have you looked into the literature regarding exactly how it happens and how long it takes? I would assume it’s the kind of thing that happens very slowly for a long time and then finishes suddenly all at once, in which case it could explain what you’re seeing. But it would be good to have that assumption backed up by some actual geomorphology.

    • I agree that seems the lost likely. The process has to have a tipping point. You’re right there needs to be something more backing up the assumption though. I have contacted a professor at College of the Siskiyous who is an expert on Mt. Shasta’s geology. I am hoping he can help me out.
