340-Ton Boulder Inches Its Way To LACMA

ROWLAND HEIGHTS (CBS) — A giant rock is on a roll as it continues its long journey to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).

The 340-ton boulder — that’s 1.2 million pounds to be precise — is currently parked across the street from the Pathfinder Community Regional Park in Rowland Heights through Sunday.

On Friday night, the rock made its way through Chino Hills.

You can track the boulder’s progress on LACMA’s website.

    Why? Why does this boulder need to go to LACMA?

    For an exhibit – are you kidding me? How ridiculous and what a waste of money. As if nobody’s seen a rock before.

    Not very precise. 140 tons is 280,000 pounds while 1,200,000 pounds is 600 tons. I remember reading where the rock weighed 370 tons. It must be the new math that the schools started teaching years ago where 1 = 2. The person who wrote this piece must have learned that math. The sad part is no one has commented about the errors until I did.
