The stones are really amazing. I've seen the pictures of stonehenge many times. Thanks for sharing the others.

I was really amazed to find examples from so many different countries. If anyone knows of any pictures of stone circles or similar formations in North America, please feel free to post a link here. I was disappointed not to find anything online about stone circles in North America. (Not that I'm really expecting to find pictures of, say, the standing stones on Ocracoke Island, NC, that Diana describes in ABOSAA <g>, but you never know...)

Those pictures aren't mine. :-) I got most of them from www.webshots.com, and you can link to them the same way I did.

Hi,

I know this is ages after the post, but I have just come across your blog.

Castlerigg is not in Scotland. It is in England in the Lake District (Cumbria).

Great blog by the way, enjoying it very much.
