337/365: Fort Hill

I’m having to pull some pictures out of the archives. I spent the day doing all sort of things that left me no time to take any pictures. I am one tired puppy! I could point the camera out the window now that I’m finally back home (at 11pm) after leaving this morning at 9am. However, it’d just be black. So I thought I’d finally share the pictures I took at Fort Hill.

My husband and I went hiking there a few weeks ago. It’s a nature area including an earthwork, built by the Hopewell Native Americans about 2000 years ago, and a circle mound.

This is the earthwork. It has a circumference of 1.5 miles, enclosing 35 acres. You can see the notch here that is a gateway.

Just some of the scenery:

This is a barn we came upon unexpectedly as we were looking for the circle mound.

That’s some scary poison ivy!

And this seemed to be the mother plant! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

It’s not easy to see. Sorry. But it was a neat place. I love the feel of the land in a place like this. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the Native Americans viewed these areas as sacred. There is something about them. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Very nice outdoor pics. I love looking at old buildings as mother nature tries to take them back. It is amazing how fast it can happen. Love the woods even in the fall and winter and the open field with the mount is cool too.
