Hawthorne Brook - Plainville MA - part 2

From the looks of it, these dry ridges and dells are short walk uphill from the brook. 

Here is a smaller rectangle with a hollow:
Here are some interesting structures along the outcrop

And here is a double-chambered mound (just like in Callahan State Park)
Here is another smaller "box":
As earlier, we have small satellite piles and a trail passing through:
Note how someone has marked the beautiful vertical-sided pile on the left with a pink ribbon:
Here we are up on top of the ridge. I don't know what to make of this any more:

Another view:
Note the bit of retaining wall.

Here is a pile with a "tail" consisting of a loose group of larger rocks connected to it on the right:
Another tumbled-down pavement:
This part of the site reminded me a lot of Pratt Hill.

Other things built against the outcrop:
Leading over to more pavement with retaining wall. Check this out:
Looking back:
