This place is sort of spooky, and in fact a paranormal group investigation was cancelled the night before our visit because of weather.

Hopefully you'll all be able to see my slideshow from this link & I won't mess this up too! http://outdoors.webshots.com/slideshow/561415489jgSEnX

I never believed this was true and a lot of scientists agree with me. The stones are exactly the same as the old cider press I had in the barn when we were wee ones. It dated from the 1700's. It even had the same "blood" stains from the ritual sacrifice of apples. LOL There are stonehenges springing up all over the US, the most recent one was built in 2004.

"America's Stonehenge claims to be the oldest megalithic site in America, but it's a boast that has been disputed, and the meaning of the place is open to anyone's interpretation. Was it built by the ancient Greeks or the Phoenicians? By wayward Irish monks, centuries before Columbus? Or by a New England farmer who just wanted a quiet spot to make soap and store roots? The curious are encouraged to ponder the mysteries here year 'round, and in the winter the attraction thoughtfully rents snowshoes to its visitors."

Interesting. & yes, who really knows how old the place is (or not). I do love the area, though, and snowshoing through there sounds like fun

I took that picture from inside my car--I pulled in to take a picture of the sledding hill to show Bugaboo what it looks like in the winter, and they surrounded me! I think they wanted to come in to get warm they kept picking up their poor little feet. I thought ducks flew south for the winter!!

Aww, I wonder if their little feet were freezing. Yeah, I thought they were supposed to fly south too. Haha. Well they are just adorable.
