Foamhenge

There is such a place in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia called FOAMHENGE. I can't remember where I first heard about it, but I had been wanting to see it for a long time. So, on the first weekend of June, when we went on a camping trip and found we would be less than 30 minutes north of this replica of Stonehenge, we just had to go see it.

It's hidden in the trees up on a hill. We could have stopped right here and walked to it....

...unfortunately, we followed the road around and drove up the hill. Look at the route we had to take to get up there! [The picture above was actually taken on our way back down the hill because I was too scared on the way up to even think about taking a picture.] You can't tell at all in the photo, but the land just drops off on either side of the road, with potholes that you have to weave around.

It was worth it, though. I could have hung around here all day. The weather was perfect (something I definitely can not say about the past month of July).

Here's what the wiki page says about it:
Foamhenge is a full-size replica of Stonehenge made entirely out of styrofoam in Natural Bridge, Virginia.[1] The structure was created by Mark Cline of Enchanted Castle Studio[1] in 2004, with the pieces in astronomically correct positions.[2] Cline has described Foamhenge as his greatest achievement.[3]

What have I got to say about it?

It's pretty much the coolest thing I've ever seen....

And! You can actually walk up to it, in it, and around it, unlike the real Stonehenge.

Yeah, it's very cool, but I admit, I am still dreaming of seeing the real thing. One day!
