East Hill Naples




My wife and I went back to one of the first sites I found years ago. This area was once the site  of an Algonquin fort and lies directly across the valley from Clark Gulley (the birth place of the Seneca). If you think about the picture of the gulley in this post you will know why the Seneca viewed this spot as a birth place. From the valley floor you can even see legs. This hill also offers the farthest view of the head of Canandaigua lakes and the forts that were located there.

The woods were beautiful and so peaceful. The stone pile was the largest I have ever seen.

The second photo in the series seems to show a triangular stone in front of the pile, in the center. Is this a manitou stone (they are generally thin)?

I don't think so Norman. Its is just one of the stones in the base layer. I don't see many manitou stones in this area. Not sure why. It maybe the fact that we have shale bedrock.
