Join me in exploring what I believe to be Native ceremonial grounds. Hopefully this blog will evolve and your perceptions and comments are welcome and appreciated here and at sachemhill7@gmail.com which has copyright, all rights reserved, to all photos on this blog. More to be revealed!

View Facing West toward Manitou Grove 

    Ceremonial Niche
    and Cairn Mound Below

    Looking up from Manitou Grove

   Some sources state that white stone and quartz was used symbolically
   to protect or block unwelcome spirits at ceremonial sites

Note the upright triangle stone with shoulders 
and the stone circle above, often representing 
the Sun or Moon at prehistoric sites

   Were any of the slabs below upright?
  Note the markings, triangle stones, and two faced stone.
  Nature or Man?
