Hike in the footsteps of the continent's ancestors
A visit to America's Stonehenge in Salem, New Hampshire, is a great activity for those who enjoy hiking and walking. You'll find yourself wandering among boulders and pines in a wild but beautiful spot, about which fantastic tales might be woven. About 30 acres of these woods are an archaeological site, where you'll find ancient megaliths, stone chambers, and a weird maze of stone markers. Who built these structures? Were they colonial farmers, Native Americans, or, as some suggest, visitors from the Old World prior to Columbus who lost their way in the Atlantic Ocean and found themselves on New England's shores. Through the years scholars have suggested Phoenician mariners, ancient Druids, Vikings, or Irish wanderers. Tour the site, and give us your opinion.
