Long Description:
The coordinates will lead you to "The Balanced Rock" of North Salem. From appearances, it is an interesting glacial erratic: a hugh boulder that came to rest upon five pegstones as the glaciers withdrew up the Hudson Valley. Some argue however that it is a man-made memorial created by Celtic people for one of their ancient kings - akin to dolmens found in Celtic lands, notably Ireland. Who knows? Maybe, unbeknownst to Leif Ericsson, there were some Celtic stowaways with advanced engineering skills on the trip to Finland...
