A visit to High Ridge Wildlife Management area - Westminster MA

Sites often do not photograph well because of bad lighting. It is all the more difficult when the site is barely perceived at all - when it is hard for me to tell if I am even looking at rock piles. In doubt, the only thing that convinces me is more rock piles nearby of the same nature.
So here are some almost useless photos of almost invisible rock piles. The site is by the side of the water (right hand blue outline above) and consists of a roadway following the edge of the water. A stone wall comes down from slightly higher land, breaks for the roadway, and continues about fifteen yards down to the water. Along the road are five low piles with hollows and one more pile that looked like a donation pile, a table with scattered cobbles on top:
Here is one of the piles:

A la video:

Some nice quartz in one of them:
 
Perhaps we can save the other site for a later post.
