Sunday Morning at the Standing Stone

Since the Eagle-Gazette has readers all over the world, including Lancaster natives who are currently deployed in the middle east, this morning I decided to walk up Mt. Pleasant and take a few pictures.  For people who are not “from around here”, let me give you a small geography lesson about the Standing Stone.

Mt. Pleasant, known by Native Americans as Standing Stone, was created when a glacier melted, leaving rock and sand, some of which had been pushed from Canada.   Mt. Pleasant is approximately 300 feet high.   Here are some pictures from the top:

I was very careful (frightened, one might say) to stay behind the railing.

Here are pictures of the walk up the “mountain.”

Notice the date enscribed in the lower right corner of the sandstone bench.  (1910.  That predates the sinking of the Titanic!!)
