Bow Hill Clearing in the Vale
I read about Bow Hill on the map and it just hit me, that the yews here are the ones that may have provided their give away to make the bows for the two leggeds and their hunts and wars. This is a beautiful bowl shaped vale and I did not know that burial mounds lay at the top when we walked the trail through the woods to the top. Much like the indigenous people of Turtle Island, the ancestors here created burial mounds in high places so their relatives would have a good resting place. Greatful that this kind of exploration and connecting the dots, continues to allow me to come alive on my earth walk.
