INTRO:

Hello hiking, nature-photography, and ancient-anthropology lovers. Please allow me to welcome you to a blog that is inclusive of all three of these genres. My personal experience is basically summed-up by this pattern; I began simply by hiking in the most beautiful places I could, taking photographs of those places, and so I began to discover megaliths in the forests, mountains, and waterfalls of the world. It changed my life. I made a serious effort to create the content of this site,  including the images and literary reviews, of each and every place. But more than that, my mission has grown into something greater; it’s about YOU, the reader, and getting YOU to these places too.

HIKING GUIDE:   This blog is intended to guide followers to some of the best hiking trails and sacred sites on earth! Each post describes where a site is, it’s distance and difficulty, and what is particularly sacred about it.  Trails are inclusive of majestic mountain peaks, forests, waterfalls, and cliffs with megalithic fixtures. This blog, for the moment, includes Ireland, Scotland, Wales, America, Canada, England, Republic of Northern Ireland, and New England. I am aware that there are incredible trails in South America, Eastern Europe and Asia, but this is where I have dedicated my time so far. On the ‘Home’ page just click on the country that you are interested in, and it will got to the national parks, nature reserves, and sacred megaliths from that nation. I hope the content continues to grow, adding to each section.

WHAT IS “SACRED”:  On both Celtic and American trails a hiker can find Dolmens, Stone-Linings, Cairns, Wedge Tombs, Triangular Cuts’, and Standing Stones, all written about in detail on this site, and some megaliths are seen for the first time ever.

Skyrim

WHY SKYRIM?:  In the winter of 2014 this website did not exist. Rather, I was dealing with 108.6 inches of snow in New England, and an average temperature 29 degrees, sometimes falling to -14 degrees! Being forced indoors for five months caused me to create indoor activities, other than reading for work ect. I bought an Xbox 360 for the first time, and due to a poster of incredible beauty featuring a landscape I saw at the store, I bought the game Skyrim.(Image Above/Below)It is arguably the best game of all time, and has sold over 20 million copies. While experiencing the incredible Celtic landscape and themes of this game, I resolved to investigate Standing Stones, Cairns, magical mountains, forests, ‘Giants’, and Wedge Tombs for myself, that is, when the weather finally turned. I enjoy paying tribute to Skyrim and encourage people to play the game, once forced inside for the winter evenings.

Below is just a few examples of Megaliths I’ve found on trails from all over the world, including the forests of New England, where I am from. My hope is that others use this site to find these beautiful places for themselves.
