Okotoks Erratic framing the Milky Way taken from the lesser photographed backside of the Erratic. Fun Facts: The Okotoks Erratic (aka "Big Rock") is a 41m by 18m by 9m high boulder, weighing in at 16,200 metric tons. It was transported from the Jasper area of the Rocky Mountains (formed 80 million years ago) by a glacier during the last ice age (17,000 years ago) and deposited 500 km away to it's resting spot 8km west of Okotoks. The Milky Way (our galaxy) is some 13 billion years old.
