Etowah Indian Mounds, The Great Temple Mound
Oct 2007

This is a view of the Great Temple Mound (Mound A) one doesn’t usually get, the images of it usually being from the walk to the mounds and great plaza on the other side, or to the front where the stairs were.

The Great Temple Mound is about 65 feet, six stories high.

I stayed atop the Great Temple Mound for a while, watching the clouds, then climbed Mound B, then, came around to this side for some pictures and was awestruck by the majesty of it and the arrangement of clouds above.

The white dots on the slopes are luminaries remaining from a night tour. Apparently they climbed the slope, which is normally off limits to individuals.
