Here is an outcrop with stone broken into slabs.
By this outcrop runs a stream where a few small slabs have been left in a standing position. This may be natural, but they seem to have be placed in a group.
then 560 feet later, a wide, broken one. Perhaps they marked the trail, or the edges of campsites.
At the end of the trail, a view of a group of manitous on the steep slope of a neighboring hill.
Here is a better picture taken a few years ago.
There are many manitous at this northern RI site, and some stand in groups. There are few or no manitous at other sites in this area where the stone does not break into thin slabs. There probably was no reason to move these small slabs more than 1500 feet from the outcrop they were broken from. If the manitous have some spiritual significance, it is linked to their site of origin. Next time I will show a site with many of these grouped manitous.
