Average? / by Dave Hileman

In the interest of the purpose of Two Lane Touring's goal of visiting and photographing each of the 417 units under the watch of the National Park Service, we offer today's unremarkable photo of a much more remarkable place. Not because of the scenic beauty but because of the ancient peoples who built and hallowed these mounds. This is the Hopewell Culture National Historical Park. It consists of several acres of mounds built about 2000 years ago in Southwest Ohio. The use is still debated but it was clearly an important place and a monumental task to build.

It is difficult to photograph, especially the time we were here. Maybe with colorful leaves, a nice sunset or snow on the mounds, but midday was tough. You cannot walk on the mounds to get a better perspective either. 

For the Lord has told me this: “I will watch quietly from my dwelling place— as quietly as the heat rises on a summer day, or as the morning dew forms during the harvest.”    Isaiah 18:4 NLT
