Columcille Megalith Park

Yesterday afternoon, we decided to take a drive to see the Delaware Water Gap. Not enough time to get in the water and go kayaking, but we at least wanted to see the views.
Well, there's not much to see as far as scenic overlooks go - but there is beautiful forest to drive through. So we just kept driving. One turn on the map never materialize and we quickly found ourselves lost. We were just commenting on a memory of being in Ireland with our friend Emily and how her instructions about the best way to see Ireland was to get lost ... when we rounded a bend and saw a standing stone! Then we caught a glimpse through the trees of a whole ring of standing stones! Had our daydreaming magically transported us to the Emerald Isle? We stopped and backed up the car ... it was a very uncrowded road ... and found signs that welcomed visitors. We spent the rest of the afternoon, and into the evening there. Watch the video below and you'll see why! Check out their website at www.Columcille.org
I uploaded this video to Google Videos. Check back tomorrow or the next day and I hope to have a high resolution version on our website with a link here. Yes, we have photos too ... 150 of them! Jim is trying to make a Photsynth with them ... more on that later.

NICE! Getting lost is so worthwhile. I'm so glad you found this place. Sure looks like Ireland. Didn't see any stone walls, though. Did you say the pub is just a little further down the path?
