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! 😮
Here is the circle mound:

And a wide angle:
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. 🙂
