Rock Walls

Post by Somero » Tue Jul 10, 2012 10:20 am

These things are a pain. Could have been made by anybody in the last couple hundred years for whatever reason, but they are interesting.

Image

This one runs about a hundred yards or so just below the ridge of a small hill, from one rock outcrop to another. From below it actually looks like it runs straight instead of winding along, it also runs downhill slightly instead of being perfectly level. Once you know its there you can really spot it otherwise it just doesn't really catch the casual glance.

Image

Image

These are also just below the ridge, a short distance from either end of the long wall. Good place to sit and hide and look out over the area below.

Image

Could have been made by anyone, maybe to keep the cows out.

Image

Could have been something at one time or maybe just naturally carved, the only thing really left visible is a 90 degree cut for an E or F. Either way it made for a fun day.

Kinda looked like a heart and even has what looks like an arrow carved that can be seen up close. Mother Natures trick's.

Sorry its a bit out of focus, this one I had to laugh about. Looks like an arrow made from the shadow at around noon. Natural weathering again, Mother Nature has a great sense of humor :lol:

Hello somero, study your photos, get a magnifier also.it is a heart, the stones in the side looked wedged In the lower part of the heart look if there is a reverse horseshoe. Across on top left stone is there a circle with a tail going to the right.? But don't go running back to this site, you never dig anywhere till you have overwhelming evidence.some people stay in one spot for years and hit solid stone
REGARDS. TOM

Hi somero, the piled rocks wall is nice. They went to a lot of trouble to put that wall.If you look to the second picture, look to the left of the wall.look at the solid wall notice the shape of the left stone, go down and look at the point on the bottom it looks like a pointer.look at that area and rocks wedged to the left. Be careful it could be a booby trap.I think the made the wall to protect water runoff and stopping the dirt from covering something.
