Location of Circle of Stones

Blue Ridge mountains The Blue Ridge Mountains are among the oldest on Earth. Many rise 4,000 to 5,000 feet; some more than 6,000 feet.  They are ancient, beautiful, resilient, and emanate more energy than you can imagine. Rather like the Woman we celebrate with the Circle of Stones.

Winding roads that lead past quaint villages and towns will carry you to them.  But it is so easy to be distracted. 

A deer in a high mountain meadow glen. A wild turkey flushed from the hayfield. Mist making love to a mountain. Antiques for sale at a village flea market. The crunch of oak leaves next to a wild river gorge.  A waterfall plunging into a boulder-lined swimming hole.

Welcome to our corner of the world. Here you can set your sights a little higher.  You can find what you have been looking for. And all the while you look, these ancient, feminine peaks will hold you in their arms.

Feast Your Eyes On All Our Mountains Have To Offer.
