Very interesting to see the height of some of these mounds Some are taller than your average male. There is a boardwalk to view some mounds as well. Toilets available and were very clean

On this my 3rd visit I noticed that some of the mounds are worse for wear? I suppose it is natural weathering but does indicate that they will eventually crumble and erode. Hopefully the termites are keen on rebuilding or they might have to get...More

Like you do visiting new places, take a look, see everything (why not if you are there and made the effort). Mounds are one of many short stops you can make driving through Litchfield. It's exposed (no shade) but you wont be there long and...More
