Today we went to Cahokia Mounds near St. Louis. It is the site of the largest earthwork in the Americas and the largest, most complex “prehistoric” native site north of Mexico. It was a really gorgeous day out. We climbed to the top of Monks Mound and for a few minutes we were actually the only people at the top and that was cool.
I really liked Woodhenge. It works like a big sundial and apparently observances of the solstices and equinoxes are held at the site.
I have always felt a connection between my own sculptures and those of ancient people. 🙂
