This weekend we drove up to America's Stonehenge in New Hampshire. I had been there before about twelve years ago - around the time of my Stonehenge (the real one) obsession. Not quite the same, but it's still very fun to walk around a site like this, something I haven't done for some time.

In the visitor center there's a stone inscription in Iberian Punic found at the site that reads "To Baal of the Canaanites (Phoenicians), this in dedication" - not sure if I'm a believer or not, but it would be pretty cool if it was real! What I like most about these sites is you will never know exactly how they got there or who built them or why. It's fun to have puzzles you will never quite be able to figure out.

There were also alpacas! I really liked this guy in the last photo, he had the biggest eyes I had ever seen!

wow, this place looks awesome! i've been past another "american stonehenge" in washington or oregon, but i'm pretty sure that it didn't have the same "ancient" backstory that the new hampshire one has.

Alpacas are the best, they're so timid! But so expensive! Otherwise I would have a billion!

Definitely a fun trip! I hope I can go back soon! And maybe check out some other similar places too! And it would be awesome to have some Alpacas! In my dream life, I've moved back to the country and have a nice small little farm with some sheep and alpacas - oh one can dream!
