Summit Stone

This is the largest stones atop the hill. Shaped smooth on all exposed sides it closely resembles a Turtle with his head cresting below the rising shell. It is my belief that this stone sits along the Major Lunar Standstill alignment of other important ancient stone sites. This stone is the “calabrating” device in a mutli-stone calculator. It would make sense that this stone were stood up right at one time or another.

The fit between stones is impressive and both appear to have been worked in order to accept the other.


The open area below is enough to sit cross legged with a nice smooth surface for sitting.
