Younger version of English landmark is just as unusual as original

To experience Stonehenge II at
its most magical, don't read this article. Or at least hide it
from your family. Motorists who suddenly come upon the Eighth
Wonder of the Texas Hill Country, without knowing it's there,
are the ones who are most amazed, most excited, most awestruck.
It can almost make them think they've been abducted by aliens
and re-deposited on Earth
While your passengers stare in wonder, park across the road from the monument. Or more correctly, the replica of the monument.
Stonehenge II is about half as tall as the original, 3,500-plus-year-old Stonehenge, which sits on Salisbury Plain north of Salisbury, England.
Children - and the child in all of us - are delighted when they realize they can approach this creation and touch it. It's not locked away behind somebody's "Private Property" sign. Although the replica is built on private land, the owner invites you to visit. (Please respect the property and leave when it gets dark.) Walk across the road, through an opening in the fence, and the replica seems to grow before you.
