I’ve been reading Julian Cope’s massive book “The Modern Antiquarian” since December. I’d love to visit the sites that Cope writes about – stone circles with names like Balgorkar or The Twelve Apostles of Ilkley Moor. But, until then, I am kept busy exploring the ancient and powerful places of my native Arizona. I’ve always had an interest in ‘thin places’ – places where the boundary between this world and the ‘other’ world seems to grow very thin indeed. I’m certain that this describes more than a few of the places in Cope’s fascinating book. Here are some photos of some of the thin places I’ve discovered in my travels through Arizona.
