...here's a few photos I took yesterday near Brush Valley,Pa. Laurel Hill walks has been in this area of mine but hasn't seen this interesting rock pile in person yet. This is a front and back view. Update: Those photos were actually from screen shots of video I took that day,this photo is from a still and shows more detail. The video can be seen at this YouTube address http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t9GAfavVG2E

What's on that hill?

that's a natural "round top" as they are known around here,some of the trees are pine and others broad leaf. It's very flat on top and we were wondering if the terrain could have been altered there.Laurel hill walks and I were all set to explore the round top but the natives aren't very nice there and at the last minute the owner reversed her previous approval I had obtained to go up on it.There site is just yards from a protected rock shelter and 3 mortar stones close by, one a very large one measuring 40 inches across and 10 inches deep.

the round top is a local landmark around here I guess you could say and can be seen from miles around.The view from up there is fantastic in all directions.

As Bill C. said - we were tossed out from exploring the mound. From all the other structures we've found in the area - I think this could be truly something major. I am convinced that mound is Native American - add the grinding stones, rockpiles and rock shelter along with finding some point - just makes it even more interesting. The other major problem is the nearby strip mine expanding - Lisa
