Tiger Rock

During the day it was just a normal greyish rock just off of our Horseshoe Lake campsite. But one night as the setting's sun's rays caught it, it transformed into this beautiful and interesting specimen.

This photo is not in the highest resolution - its about 10 years old and from Brule Lake. But as far as Rock formation goes, the one this "forced" to happen is a neat formation all in itself!
