Rocky Mountain Portal Tomb
Some portal tombs are free-standing and some like this one are built into a hillside. I’ve never seen a portal tomb outside of Ireland and I’ve never seen one this small. Suitable for foxes, coyotes or similar sized animals, this one is right off the road leading to our mountain house. I’ve driven that road for 39 years now and this fall was the first time I ever noticed it. So much for my powers of observation, although to be fair, that section of road is narrow with a drop off so it’s not a real good idea to be gawking around much while negotiating it.
