Easter Island, Chile

What is sure is that over 800 large stone statues exist there. The Easter Island statues, stand, on the average, over twice as tall as a person and have over 200 times as much mass. Few specifics are known about the history or meaning of the unusual statues, but many believe that they were created about 500 years ago (...) #astronomy

The Moai “heads” on Easter Island have bodies. Because some of the statues are set deep into the ground, and because the heads are disproportionately large, many people tend to think of them as just big heads. But the bodies are there — in many cases, underground. What’s even more interesting — there are petroglyphs (rock markings) that have been preserved below the soil level, where they have been protected from erosion. Michael Massaro

Trails on this mountain by the lower Galilee lead to a cave-fortress, ruins of an ancient synagogue and, from the lookout atop the mountain, incredible views of almost all of Galilee, the Golan Heights and most of the Sea of Galilee.
