Until You Know

Scores of stone circles. I’ve written about them before. Too small to be hogan or tipi rings, wrong shape/size/place to be hunting blinds. (Though we did come upon a blind that overlooked a draw: U-shaped, right for one man to lie on his belly.)

The circles are very old. No idea what they can be if not for so-called “vision quests,” in the nature of “go out there and fast until you know your true name.” Who can tell? There was not one that didn’t have a view of Cabezón, the Ladrones, or the Sandias. All those peaks are sacred.

Shirtsleeve warm, and a restless, intermittent wind.

 

 

One thought on “Until You Know”

  1. Hi Betsy,

    There is a stone circle on the shoulder of the hill behind 76 Las Palomas Lane. It had a good view of the Jemez and Sangre de Cristo. I always wondered about it. I thought perhaps it was a rude shelter for lookouts, but I like your idea better.

    Best, Dale
