See-through niche

Nice! Can the sun get through that hole?

No, I don't think so. However, there are some very nice rock piles further uphill and quite a few standing stones so I suspect it is a spirit portal.

Some niches are probably accidental, so we need to be careful when interpreting them.

I have some still photos and looking back at those - for this to be accidental: the standing rock enclosing the niche either slipped off the top, landed upright and then somehow slid itself into place so that the shorter, upper portion of the standing rock is just under the "roof" of the niche (and further under the rocks it slid off of), or the iceberg left this standing this way. If I found this in and of itself, I would question it, but there is enough uphill to justify it as a see-through niche. It's a nice site!

I'll go back after big game/rifle season ends and brush some leaves away. I didn't want to make a lot of shuffling noise and get mistaken for a buck!

I think it is pretty safe to say it is man made.
