WHy don't you consider using that wonderful magical tool commonly
called a map?

There are at least two places being described, one I've seen, the other I
just heard described.

One, which is a stonehenge aproximation, is in central texas, near Hunt,
Kerrville, Fredricksburg, Enchanted Rock and generally the western edge 
of the Hill country. IT apparently looks about like stonehenge, dunno
never been there.

There is annother ring of stones in east texas near hunstsville, Lake 
Livinston, about halfway between houston and nacogdochases. it has some
superficial resemblances to stone henge (there are some stones that
are set on two vertical stones) except the stones ar knee-high to a 12 

I imagine the owner of the land built the ring of stones, dunno if
anyone uses them for rituals, I think they are asatru.
