Geoffrey Whittum describes himself as a Woods Walker. On his many hikes in the woods of New England, New York and Pennsylvania, he began to notice the rocks. Not just any rocks, but rocks stacked, formed, carved and positioned. As he began to map the rocks and notice patterns in the stacking, balancing and more, he began to wonder who had done this? Colonists? Native Americans? Glaciers? He eliminated each of these answers. Come this evening to see his pictures and hear his theories. No registration is necessary.
