AK: What do you do for a living?

HD: I am one of the most famous features of Yosemite National Park! People look up at me. I am 87 million years old.

AK: What are you most famous for?

HD: That’s a tough one, but I’m going to have to say I’m most famous for the Indian legend about me. My husband was very cruel to me and we were turned to stone by the Creator of Yosemite for we brought evil and anger into the land.

AK: Has there ever been anything that people have thought about you that’s not true?

HD: As a matter of fact, yes. People think that there’s another half to me and it just fell off somehow, but there never WAS another half, it is scientifically proven, but, still, people think there is and it has eroded.
