The Rock

Horse tracks lead into the North tip of the woods West by Southwest of Williamstown. The tracks lead to a rock near the center of the woods, which rises from the ground and resembles a witch’s head topped with a pointy hat. The base of the rock is surrounded by horse tracks and small rocky rubble. The rubble at the North side is metamorphic, and some rocks contain sparse patches of black magnetite iron. On the South side is a ‘U’ shaped cradle filled with horse tracks.

At the back of this cradle against the rock, a 2 foot raised platform roughly 3.5′ × 5.5′ lies on the ground – like an altar. Although the stone looks similar to that of the rock, careful examination reveals that it is of a completely different stone due to the difference in pitting and fracture lines. There is also a fine line where the top of the altar meets the rock, and scrape marks in front of and on the sides of the altar – it looks as if this stone can somehow slides into the large rock.

At roughly shoulder height and to the right of the altar, on the rock is a 6" round circle of polished magnetite iron impossibly embedded in the surrounding stone.
