I've got a question for you. It may seem silly at first, but will make sense once I explain. 

Where are the bones?

The artifacts you find all the time seem to cover every inch of the earth. For so many to exist, there must have been billions and billions of people around the globe creating these things, yet the only evidence of their existence is these stones. there should be human skeletons everywhere. There should be remains of the things they ate. There should be evidence of their bodily functions. Yet, there is nothing other than these rocks.

Very good point and I think what I am hunting are in fact burial grounds of some sort but I’m far too chicken to go digging after them. I don’t even think they like me playing with the rocks.

Not sure if you're showing a fine or inviting opinion.  The round rock be natural, could be man made.  The "burial Grund" to me looks like a rock that was deposited there fairly recently, probably older than the surrounding trees, but not much.  My guess is you could walk uphill and see where it fell from.  The tunnel in the rock looks like a animal hole.

I found one like that the other day. Only it was much rounder and about 6" in diameter. It was, like yours, granite

Living in AZ, I do not see many glacier moved rocks anymore.  I seem to remember them always being rounded like a river rock, but that one is a little sharp and kind of looks like it was placed there recently, not aeons ago.  There's very few places in AZ where the rock cobbles are rounded.  Most here are sharp and broken.  It's really odd after growing up in New England where all the rocks were rounded by glaciers or streams.

Anyway, you know your local geology much better than I.

Thanks wasn’t sure of material thought quartzite. I don’t really know squat about geology chrisski. That is on what some call a rock pile site, many other cool rocks around, and like I said much bigger than looks in pic.

That boulder looks like its downhill roll might have been stopped by the trees.  And I bet Chrisski is right, that you could find a place uphill where it fits like a puzzle.  Ice is a mighty powerful force when water works its way into cracks.
