Island "stone"

Here's something to emulate. This is at the mouth of Resurraction Bay, near Seward, Alaska.

That photo says it all. Stark and powerful. Is that a radio tower or a tree in the middle?

I'd like to think it was a tree, but I think it's a navigation aid. It's a bit too precisely at the highpoint of the island for a tree, and a bit too upright for a lone tree on a windswept Alaskan island to boot.

It seems as if navigation aid, a made of iron thing. Laughing

Hi Mike:

The stone you posted is "major league."
Its proportions are just about perfect along with its shape, colour and surface.
Could you share more information about it?

Island stone

Hi Peter, good to "speak" with you again.

I collected this stone in California a few years ago. The daiza is by Sean Smith. This is really the back of the stone, although both sides are credible viewing perspectives.

I'll take a better shot and post it as soon as I can.
