Cairns & Stonework near Lake Whitehall, Hopkinton MA.
This stone-work is from a different location in Hopkinton MA from where my last few posts have been focusing on. These stoneworks are relatively closeby to the old "Hopkinton Beehive". I didn't get to do too much exploring in this area though and I plan to come back to this area sometime. But, here are some things that were off the street in the woods, off a side street near the "Hopkinton Beehive" reconstruction, no doubt associated with the original "beehive" shrine:

Another cairn nearby:
Stone wall running through a ledge:

Part of the stone wall as seen from the street. Notice the bird/ serpent head-stone at the end of the ledge, a classic feature of pre-colonial Native stone-wall building. In fact now that I think of it I should do a post in the future cross-examining this feature from different locations to show off the pattern (even one of my last posts has this same feature in it as well):
