Despite the tourist hordes, Stonehenge retains an air of mystery and majesty (partly because smartly designed barriers, which keep visitors from trampling all over it, foster the illusion that it stands alone in a field).
Visitors are free to wander among its 100 stones, ditches, mounds and curious patterns from the past, as well as stroll in the village of Avebury, which grew up around and even within this fascinating 1,400-foot-wide Neolithic circle.
On a recent visit, enjoying the half-mile walk along the perimeter path, I tried to make sense of the earthen ditch and bank, grateful for the concrete markers showing where the missing broken-up stones once stood.
Sitting alone (except for the sheep) in the middle of this circle of stones, drenched in lush and pristine Lake District beauty, I imagined dancing druids, and dancing flames, and the fear that winter would snuff out spring forever.
At Clava Cairns, set in a peaceful grove of trees just a few minutes’ drive from Inverness, are the remains of three thought-provoking stone igloos, each cleverly constructed with a passageway that the sun illuminates, as if by magic, with each winter solstice.
 their misty, mossy settings provide curious travelers with an intimate and accessible glimpse of the mysterious people who lived in prehistoric Britain.
When in Britain, strive to find your own private circle — an obscure, weathered bit of 4,000-year-old mounds and ditches with a couple of surviving upright stones.
The book, titled "Day Hiking the San Juan Islands and Gulf Islands,'' covers 136 hikes in 334 pages. Its subtitle is Saanich Peninsula, Anacortes and Victoria. The cover price is $18.95 and it's part of The Mountaineers Books' handy hand-size "day hiking" series.
Some 15 potters make and display their works at the store. Pottery for sale is displayed inside and outside, with many a picnic table covered with fine pieces that tend to get purchased as the summer wears down, or are moved inside for winter display.
Those who want to explore the islands by car (or by bike, or even on foot) can ride the ferries to four of the largest islands: Lopez, Shaw, Orcas and San Juan, listed in order of the ferry stops upon departure from the mainland at Anacortes.
Three commercial flights were diverted in the span of nine days recently because of passenger squabbles over reclining seats, prompting the question: Has shrinking legroom pushed fliers to their breaking point?
