The Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center is hosting Autumn at Gungywamp. It is a guided tour through the beautiful complex lasting approximately two hours. Registration is $10 a person and can be done online or over the phone. The link is here:
I think this is the perfect opportunity for us all to go. When I spoke with them over the phone they did not have an issue with a relatively large number of us going. All they ask is we register individually.
Since Groton, CT is about two hours away we should all plan to meet somewhere early so we get there at around the same time. What works for everybody?
Let's make this finally happen!
I have to say I was not impressed by much of what is onsite there, but as always the chambers are the wild card. You can explain away the stegosaurus fin-like standing stones and unusual concentric stone circles in any number of ways, but those crazy stone chambers are so much work and built in such a deliberate manner it adds to the mystery of any place they are near, in a major way. They are not easily dismissed.
The large chamber with the corbelled circular side room was most impressive.
Looking over websites and some books I have it seems there is more there we did not see. A more detailed examination of the area might have impressed me a bit more than I am now. That said it is always fun to explore with KEPRI!

I respect what you have said concerning the site. As it was first time to Gungywamp and really my first time to any site like this, I didn't know what to expect and so held, and still hold more of an open mind, not expecting anything specific to happen, allowing whatever unfolds to do so. I agree that the chambers were deliberately done by someone, and those people have left their mark on the chambers and the surrounding environment. To me, there is a spiritual connection at the chambers that can not be easily explained away.
It was very nice to meet you and I hope to see you again on another excursion/hike
