Our last visit to a stone circle seems to be many moons ago so it was nice to get up on the hills in Cumbria and see the second largest stone circle in the United Kingdom. The whole structure is a circle with a diameter of around 140 metres. Named Long Meg and her daughters the structure dates back to around 1500 BCE. Long Meg stands about 4 meters high and is made of local sandstone, the daughters are made of rhyolite. The stone also stands outside the main circle. Long Meg and her daughters are, according to local legend, witches who were turned to stone for profaning the Sabbath. If that were true I cannot help but think the whole country might be littered with stones by now.

Good Friday. I decided to visit the River Jordan and the site of Christ’s baptism. It is set in a military zone on the border between Jordan and Israel / Palestine. A whole set of very mixed emotions – brought on by the nature of borders, religions and conflicts between peoples. – John May
I do not know if you did not get bored. So many national parks in such a short time. We definitely did not! The last point on our cycling map was Zion National Park. 🧐
A small adventure awaited us here. There is a tunnel in the Park that only cars can drive – that means we could not go by bicycle. If you think that we had to turn around and tour around the park, then you are wrong. A nice ranger decided to help us … and he stopped a pickup for us to which we could fit our bikes, saddlebags and ourselves.
Zion, as promised, was beautiful. We climbed Angels Landing, from where there is an amazing view of the Park, but it cost me a lot of fear to enter there. Steep approaches, chasms and sometimes very narrow trails can really make you feel and have a stronger heartbeat. Nevertheless, it was worth it. 🧗
