A Walk in the Woods

This  stone resembles a bird,'s head, and is located on the north end of the plateau, facing west towards The Lake, about 1/3 of a mile from  what appears to have been a main Native American ceremonial site.  What is noticeable is that the stone piles here do not have additional bits and bobs of "donation" rocks,  as appear to have been added over time to those in the southern end of this location. 

Large "Nut Grinding"  Boulder

This boulder is about 3 1/2 feet tall and about 5 feet in diameter. It is located on the highest spot at the northern end of  the "long trail" which  can be seen behind the boulder.  The animals  (Moose, Deer, Bear, Fox, CoyDogs) use  the trail  regularly.  From the trail, one can see the remnant of a small spring in the   swale below. 

Is this a perched boulder or a balanced rock?  A curiosity which faces west towards The Lake. There is evidence
of some pecking. A lot of rocks around the base are studded with garnets and there is a large split boulder loaded with quartz and lots of other shiny bits nearby.
