Western PA Rock Piles

Reader Bill writes:

I found these rock piles several miles north of where I live, a few miles north of a place called Dilltown which is along Rt 403 which comes out of Johnstown.The rock mounds were about around 8 ft long and 1-2 feet high.

Imagine my surprise in reading this post and realizing that Dilltown is only a couple of miles away from me in Johnstown. I was out that way a couple of weeks ago - surveying where I want to search next. I have to say - the "style" of the rockpiles and mounds are the same as I have been finding and posting at http://laurelhillwalks.blogspot.com/

I've found a big rock pile on pennview MT.years ago..approximately 6feetwide by 6feet wide and 3feet high..out in the woods..we found a big rectangular stone at least 3 inches thick at the bottom of the pile..
