Finding Balance on Sylvan Dale’s Waters

Jesse King, a guest at Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch during Bonfils Stanton Foundation’s company retreat, took a break from the activities to create a wonderful display of balance. More than a dozen actually. Despite the rising waters from the rains the stones remain steadfast.

It’s not Stonehenge but still impressive to see; slender stones peacefully projecting skyward from the rushing waters of the Big Thompson River. One might say it’s symbolic of what happens during a stay at Sylvan Dale. Finding balance in the oftentimes riotous current of life.

Shall we call it Sylvanhenge? Hmmm.

This is a great “article” – very creative. I love it! It makes me want to visit. :)

The photos are very nice. Very pretty area. And what a neat idea! I wonder how long it took him to do that. Do you know how he got the rocks to stand on the others like that?

“Sylvanhenge”! Haha! Spinal Tap would surely understand the 18″ likeness of Stonehenge! “Are we gonna to do ‘Sylvanhenge’ tomorrow?” ;-)


“Nobody knows who they were, or what they were doing, but their legacy remains, hewn into the living rock …”

The images of Stonehenge are valuable forms made by man and sometimes used by other men such as Moore. But Sylvanhenge is made by water.
