In the Mojave Desert outside of Lander California sits the largest single rock (bolder) in the world : Giant Rock California.
It has a strange, colorful history that includes UFOs and a guy blasting a tunnel under it to build a place to hide then blowing himself up under the rock after being wanted by the sheriff. Kids come out and paint graffiti on it regularly. At one time it had an airstrip right next to it and was used as an emergency landing site for planes in Southern California.
You can’t beat Southern California for the weird and wacky.
