A little gully facing northwest - Shirley, MA
Went walking at a hill in Shirley which I know has rock piles on it, deciding to explore a part I hadn't been to. And I saw only the faintest of traces in several places. Once, where my path was obstructed by a fallen tree, I stepped aside and saw a pile I would have missed: It turned out to be one of four or five along the foot of a hill at the edge of the wetter ground that dropped off to the northwest. Several of these other piles had noticeable pieces of quartz in them (sorry for the bad pictures): Here, the quartz is part of a larger rock:The light was not too good. Were these really ceremonial?
