Anyway…

In 2011, my girlfriend and I took a trip to Rolla, Missouri, to attend a conference at the University of Science and Technology. While there we took in some of the sites around town and campus.

 

 

Yes. That is a Stonehenge.

And then this view greeted us just north of the Rolla. The picture, of course, doesn’t do it justice. It reminded be of Cimmeria, a poem by the legendary Robert E. Howard:

I remember
The dark woods, masking slopes of sombre hills;
The grey clouds’ leaden everlasting arch;
The dusky streams that flowed without a sound,
And the lone winds that whispered down the passes…
