Floods and landslides buried trails and markers, trees have grown and died, making this monument hard to find. The past remains hidden in clouds of memory.  Still it returned to us memories from a thousand years before.

The crows.  That sound.  Kaw-kaw-kaw.  And the cold late winter air in the bare branches of the trees.

Memories from a thousand years before.
