What do you think of Stonehenge: magical, or just a bunch of rocks? I always thought of the place as magical, as evidenced by my thoughts on my first trip to Stonehenge five years ago. But when I went back last weekend, I wondered whether the legendary circles of sarsen stones would awe me as much the second time as they had the first.
My high school English teacher used to lead a trip to England every summer. He took students to see the literary highlights of London, the birthplace of Shakespeare, and the mysterious sarsen stones near Salisbury. Students returned from England raving about the sights they saw and the beer they imbibed, but the one facet of the trip that always piqued my curiosity was the day trip to Stonehenge. I made it a goal to go there someday.
