|Description ||A huge cairn at Oley Hills, Berks County, Pennsylvania, set on a boulder. Quartz stones from the valley below (seen in the background) are incorporated into this cairn, and the slanted top is made up of smaller stones and pebbles.|
|Note the bluish ridge on the far horizon. The hill on which this site is built gives a broad view of what is called the Lehigh Valley, east to the Delaware River, the river intimately connected with the Lenape people, and north to the ridge seen here in the distance, known as the Kittatinny, or Endless Mountain. Some think sites were arranged so that fires, used for ritual or even communication, would be visible from one site to another|
