Wow! I think this is THE most beautiful photo I have seen in a very long time. Those stones are amazing...I have always wanted to see them in person. Are you allowed to touch them? They look like a group of old men standing around...but I know they are much bigger than that...

I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Beautiful photograph. That's some history! The city I live in is just over 100 years old, although there are areas that the native Americans have been using for much longer than that.
