Standing Stones, Dolmen, Menhirs and Cairns… A Megalithic Landscape!
The land here is made of Magic. I look around me at this tumbled landscape of Stone and Mountain, and can almost see the hands of ancient giants at work. It is if they (?) were erecting standing stones and menhirs , or building cairns to guide, amaze and delight all who happen to come upon them. And surely, to remind us just how small and insignificant we are in the grander scheme of things.
If the land weren’t enough, the sky here is made to induce awe. In the daylight, shades of blue from the palest, to hues of such startling intensity as to dizzy the observer. Sunrises and sunsets range from ombre shaded pastels to lemon, orange and strawberry sherberts painted across the sky. And then there are the nights in West Texas, when the Dark Skies are so crowded with stars that it takes your breath away. They are a religious experience for the beholder.
