Walking up from the bottom of the west slope, I reach a large outcrop.
These large, square blocks suggest that this stone was once quarried. About 265 feet further up the slope is this propped boulder. It has the usual oblong shape of propped boulders in RI.
The next structure is this small perched boulder, about 86 feet further up the slope.
That is a satellite dish in the background. The outcrop and two structures make a straight line leading to the summit of the hill. If there were other elements in this line, they are long gone.
There are two more propped boulders on top of the hill. These are 350 feet apart, and it is impossible to tell if they were once part of a larger arrangement.
Both have remained because they are in nobody's way, and are resting on bedrock. Canonicus Rock was not as fortunate, and was reduced to a pile of rubble in the 1950s as a precaution against it falling into Plainfield Street.
