As I’m sure I’ve said before, since childhood I’ve been absolutely fascinated by the gigantic boulders of Devil’s Den. There’s just something powerful and awe-inspiring about this jumble of prehistoric rocks; the more time I can spend there, the better, though even just a glimpse fires the imagination. Here’s a close-up of some of the boulders near the curve in the road which leads past Triangular Field. Even if no battle had take place here, the sheer size and age of the boulders is enough to captivate any and all visitors.
