A nice little place in Groton, where it is hard to find things..

Rock pile at bottom of vernal pond. A surprising number of experts emerge on the subject,

Rectangular mound with hollow - made of dirt. Looking at the photo, I remember this was one of the nicest things to find - in a place where there were not many loose cobbles available.

And the energy seems to fade. In many other places I went looking for rectangular mounds and, usually found them. EMC bulldozed a beautiful site. Took some nice walks with friends, especially down in Hopkinton and Holliston. Where the piles are so pretty:

More and more people out finding rock piles on their own.
