Geocache Description:

Small Pill bottle with log.. Bring your own pen. We placed this cache in honor of our 10 year wedding anniversary. (3/2/2002)

Take a picture of yourself here and post it!

Stonehenge II is a replica of the original Stonehenge monument, conceived by the late Al Shepperd and built with the help of his friend and neighbor, Hunt resident Doug Hill. It was originally located on FM 1340 west of Hunt, Texas, USA. Stonehenge II is currently in front of the Point Theatre in Ingram, Texas (78028).

Most of the stones are constructed of plaster applied to a wire mesh frame.[1] On the other hand, two of the central stones are real, large, and probably unmovable without heavy equipment.

There are also two imitation Moai, or Easter Island (Rapa Nui/Isla de Pascua) statues, at the same site. The imitation Moai are made of the same material as the Stonehenge II stones.

The site features now rarely seen large red harvester ants. The mounds are easy to spot as the ants have cleared the vegetation in about a one meter diameter circle around them. The red ants, a primary source of food for the Texas Horned Lizard (or horny toad), have mostly disappeared because of the proliferation of fire ants (visit link)
