I just learned that there is a Stonehenge relica in Maryhill, Washington.

I want to go see it.

Unfortunately, it's 4.5 hours drive away. But still...

You should

Snippy & I have been there a couple of times. It's very interesting. You should also visit the Maryhill Museum while you're there--some great sculptures and art too.

I vaugely recall seeing it (or at least, a stonehenge replica in NWUS) on a road trip with my grandfather, about 10 years ago. I probably still have pictures of it, but I remember it being pretty cool. It's even adjusted for local latitude differences, iirc.

Been there it's nice.

there is also a good museum nearby and there used to be an observatory that was open to the public, don't know if it is still there

We were down there about this time last year, and I have to admit: the Stonehenge actively turned me off.

A bunch of other things about the trip were great, though; the scenery is gorgeous, there's a public observatory in the area, and the Bonneville dam and Maryhill Museum are worth touring.

4.5 hours may be far...

... but it's still a helluva lot closer than the real thing. Of course, it may just be kitchy americana, rather than touching the grandeur of something as truly old as Stonehenge

*smile* - yeah, the best part of it really is the museum - the whole space was built by this guy Sam Hill (as in "where the sam hill are we?"...) - who built a paved road from baja california to Alaska... he was into concrete... the road was Highway 99 :-)

Definitely make the trip - it's worth seeing
