Day trip: Maryhill Stonehedge

Day trip: Maryhill Stonehedge

A few weeks ago my roomie and I took a drive down to southeast Washington to see the Maryhill Stone Hedge memorial.

The drive was longer than anticipated but totally worth it. We listened to an audiobook and enjoyed fun conversations. Road trips are fun! The drive there and back was beautiful! Blue skies and 85 degrees with a light gentle breeze. We ended up making a couple stops on the way once at rest area and another at Battleground campground.

Battleground campground surrounded a decent sized lake and had plenty of foliage and spots to set up camp. It was a nice place to go and stretch our legs and enjoy beautiful nature sights.

We drive another two hours or so from there to Stone hedge. There were a lot of people there but the sights from on top of the hill were great. From the hill you can see the Columbia river and fruit orchards. Stonehedge itself was a cool sight. I felt a weird ominous presence as we approached it and couldn’t decipher if it was dehydration setting in or that there were interesting events that were held there. Either way, it was neat to see. Check out the webpage for more details on how it was constructed. A very interesting tale indeed.

I would rate this experience as a whelmed experience in that there were a lot of people there and I feel it would be way cooler at night. Apparently there are theatre products there. We ended up finding all sorts of places and things to see on the way back. A park that overlooked the Columbia river with a lighthouse on an island, Multnomah falls, Horsetail Falls and a museum or two. I feel this trip could be extended out to two days or more. There is so much to see. But now we have more to check out when we head back that way.

Here’s to more day trips!
