A Sioux Quartzite Boulder in its Native Habitat

Trosky, MN, United States

Yesterday, I made a post about a Sioux Quartzite boulder that I found in Kansas. This boulder was not native to Kansas. The Sioux Quartzite does not crop out there. The boulder had been moved there by a glacier. Having spent a lot of time in Kansas, I am well familiar with these beautiful pink (sometimes red or purple) boulders.

On one of my trips to Minnesota, I saw lots of these boulders in their "Native Habitat". The Sioux Quartzite crops out along the Minnesota-South Dakota State Line and in a small corner of Iowa. This boulder was at one of the State Parks between Pipestone and Luverne. I cannot remember which park.
