While checking that cows had not discovered our incomplete fence, I stumbled across this unique feature.
What from below appears to be a simple rock formation, from above is a totally different creation.
Now, with my degree in anthropology, I was instantly fascinated! This overlooked the entire country. Was it a hunter’s blind? Was it an eagle trap?
I looked at the bottom rocks… there wasn’t much soil build up around them. There wasn’t much dust blown in among any of the other rocks. While the walls are solid, very solid… there just wasn’t any lichen or moss growing… no signs of age whatsoever.
But then I found it. Buried in the the thin layer of dirt on the bottom. The round metal seal of the Copenhagen tribe! Yup. Planted ceremoniously face up… the shiny tin of the seal declared for all to see that the Copenhagen tribe had built this in ages gone by. The seal was in amazing shape, and sure to be recognized as a valuable artifact. Dating should be left to the professionals… 😉
Brandon shared that he had found a koozie on the hillside below… wow, to think that someone spent enough time at this site to drink a beverage….
No matter its age, this man-made feature does look out over a spectacular landscape…Find me here!

I think your wonder dogs, Eden and Bravo, built themselves a great look-out post when you were napping! hahahahaha! 🙂
That is so cool
It looks old. I know you didn’t find any new growth on it, but I believe it could have very well been an Eagle trap. From all the country you can see, it may have been a lookout spot for a native tribe.
Would that be the more recent lineage of the Copenhagen tribe? They carry around these little round green tins, stuffed with their herbal Medicine, and sometimes small ‘medicine objects’, other pharmaceuticals or fire sticks . The seal of the tribe is stamped on the top for all to see. I wonder where did they find the tools to do the stamping? Must have been a time consuming as arrowhead or spear tip making.
No doubt built by hunter gatherers, perhaps as long ago as hmmmmmm, let’s say Last Year??? Or possibly by some younger tribe member(s) (some of them rocks are pretty big) fighting an imaginary battle/war.
I have never heard of a Copenhagen tribe.
amazing the work that went into it. Incredible view for sure. I’m so excited for you. You may be in some history book. Finding evidence that the Copenhagen tribe might still around. You are something else lady. tee hee
Pretty cool what a view and the little critter likes it too!
He’s lucky the dogs didn’t get him
I’ll have to look up Copenhagen tribe.
Eagle trap? I started of the morning by learning something new! I had never heard of trapping Eagles, now days, that earns you a huge fine & maybe a little room & board in the cell, That was a n interesting find! Thanks!
What a find!
