Two rock pile "site" in the Weston woods

About 1/4 mile from the last site I reported from Weston, MA. I believe that rock piles rarely occur when the landscape is flat and unchanging. If there is a bump, a drop, or some kind of change in the topography then rock piles may occur.

I think your observation on topography is a significant one. I also think it's important to note that topography may only be the remaining framework for these sites that we can identify today. Topography would've played a role in what kind of trees once grew there and what kinds of views the site afforded in the distant past and what kinds of alignments with the sky were once possible. So the topography might only be circumstantial.
