The Memorial Rock is the one they left there, there was another. Two giant rocks came down. The one right in the middle of what used to be blacktop was blown up. They actually built a dirt ramp up to the top of that rock to get a drilling truck up on it. They drilled about 15 holes, filled em with explosives, and let em off. It left no rocks bigger than a large trash can. The hiway dept then routed the new road slightly around the remaining rock. If anyone takes that route, from Dolores to Telluride over Lizard Head Pass (a favorite route of mine), stop at the little town of Rico at the Enterprise Bar & Grill. Best hamburgers in Colorado, and the rest of the menu is great. Also notice just down below Rico you will cross Scotch Creek. It flows single malt Jan-Mar, blended the rest of the year.
