The following diagram shows an area in which propped boulders form two contiguous large square enclosures. The entire complex is about 1500 feet long, with uneven sides of 1000 (west) and 600(east) feet.
The propped boulders are the yellow dots joined by a yellow dashed line. The red dots are cairns, and the blue dots with lines are walls. The extra yellow dots are either large boulders or split boulders. While some of these may have been split by Natives, the foliated granite in this area splits easily from weathering. I have not incorporated any split boulders because of uncertainty as to their origin.
Most of these photos and waypoints were taken in December 2009. Some of them will look familiar, since they have been shown before.
This week I will show the propped boulders for the large enclosure to the left (west).
This enclosure has four corners, which nearly line up as compass points. There isn't anything memorable in the center.
At the top north corner of the square, waypoint 209
Continuing about 420 feet southwest to waypoint 142, with this propped boulder,
588 feet along the same line is this propped boulder at waypoint 646. Note the young bent tree in the foreground.
The line for the perimeter of the west enclosure continues 360 feet northeast to this propped boulder at waypoint 152.
Finally, the line continues about 115 feet to this arrangement at waypoint 220.
To finish the west enclosure, a line extends from this group about 225 feet northwest to this massive propped boulder at waypoint 214.
I will show the propped boulders of the smaller east enclosure, and the apparent diagonal line bisecting it, next week.
