After our Devil’s Marbleyard Hike, Mike took us to another unique site– Foamhenge. It is a full-scale replica of Stonehenge… only made out of styrofoam! It is right off Route 11, just slightly north of Natural Bridge, Virginia. A sign at the site compares the construction of the Stonehenge and Foamhenge. Here is a quick summary:
|Completion Time||1500 Years||6 Weeks|
|“Stone” Weight||50 Tons||420 Pounds|
|Labor||Estimated 600-1000 Men||“4-5 Mexicans and One Crazy Man”|
Here are some shots of our visit:

Between this and the makeout couple at the airport, I am definitely seeing alot of unusual sights this week!
