NORRIS, 01 October 24, 2011

Probably still within Stype (centered by the Mouth of NORRIS) is this tree with mainly illegible words/letters carved on its trunk. Connected with the Voice Rock glyphs near Mouth of NORRIS? (both basically the same color; both pictured in 1st photos of successive blog posts about NORRIS). Time might tell.

There’s an official hiking path that runs basically all the way up and down the side of NORRIS. Seldom used, however, in comparison to most in the area, which contains bookoos of such hiking paths. It’s far enough from the creek so as not to ruin the overall ambiance and intercede in the general mystery of the place, but close enough to allow pretty easy access to any point along it.

Odder rock along the side of this path, which seems to have been, once more, placed on purpose here instead of being a natural occurrence. Reminds me of the headstone of NORRIS seen in the first photo of this blog post:

Not too far downstream from Dongoba and the Head of NORRIS appears this cluster of rocks, another obvious working of Michael Too. There’s no transparent stacking per se in effect here, just alignments. Perhaps this represents a place he scavenged for stones to use in the Dongoba temple complex.

Interesting rock ledge directly across the stream…

Close up of the alignment mentioned above. Actually, the rocks seem to be more just leaning against each other here than either aligned or stacked.

Much larger, flat boulders in the vicinity, obviously not artificially placed — too big. More on this particular collection soon.

Below appears several examples of smaller rock pilings or “temples” along the stream, again obvious handiwork of Michael Too in my opinion.

Mysterious shelf mouth along NORRIS. What is the stream trying to say??



Pietmond Grows A Bit Again…

Additional of Gallery Jack (most of my “Art 10×10” within) is the big news. Also in the town now: Rookwood Cottage and unnamed coffee shop in front of Gallery Jack. Moved House of Truth from Pietmond Heights to beside SoSo West to make it more accessible, and balance the community structures better. Created sidewalks to Peter’s Grave and added *3* headstones in front of it (pictures pending). What else? Oh, deleted the Blue Feather Gallery for now, because one couldn’t reach it easily from the rest of town, plus the material within seems a bit dated now. But it could return. So Gallery Jack essentially replaced Blue Feather Gallery in the bigger picture.

Looking toward Gallery Jack (big box structure in background — not the plywood one but the one more in the middle of the photo) from Home o’ Fibs.

House of Truth, with SoSo West to left.

An unexpected worshiper in front of Peter’s Grave just before the aforementioned sidewalk and tombstones were added. Nifty.
