Description An eyecatcher on top of a small hill with a commanding view of the area including Ramon crater
Caption An inspiring arrangement of stones, evidence of intelligence and balance, in a barren landscape. This structure, built with stones arranged like a house of cards, is on the top of a small hill overlooking the park below and the crater in the distance. The view, once you get there, is magnificent.
