The view from downhill.
Maybe it's from tools being worked. A couple of feet behind this boulder is a smaller one slowly being buried by the forest. There's something suspicious about the edge.
I kick some of the dirt away, and find a nice symmetrical depression, which was probably a mortar. Note the brightness at the edge of the depression.
This may have been a women's work site for food processing.
92 feet north and on top of the hill is this large boulder propped on bedrock.
And here is the top of this boulder.
There is a shallow depression in the center, and a deeper one on the edge.
I'm tall, but I can barely reach the center depression. If this was used as a work table, maybe the users sat on top. Moon Hill does have a third propped boulder which forms a triangle with the other two.
The large propped boulder is on top of the hill, with the above propped boulder directly downhill. The propped boulder with the mortar is to the right near the cliff. I unknowingly painted this corner arrangement and posted it 11/19/11!
These hilltop work sites usually have very good, unobstructed views of the surroundings.This probably had some defensive purpose.
