Frank: Oddly, we have discovered a "Dolmen" in Oregon according to a Irish friend Shay Larkin. I have been working with Oregon State University Archaeology Department; but they have never seen something like this!

Help? Contact me at fnature@msn.com to recieve photos and this ancient site has a wonderful view of the coming winter solstice. It must be very old; as the stream near it is almost dried up and simply a hot springs at base of hill below it today. it was probably nice here at end of Ice Ages?
