There's no place like Foam

foamhengeIt's almost been a year since I first discovered Foamhenge, and I look forward to the day when I can return. It's a good low budget day trip if you live semi-close to Lexington, Virginia. The admission price is zero and it's just a mile north of Natural Bridge Park with a very pleasing view of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the back drop.

Foamhenge has been around since 2004 when Mark Cline partnered with the people at Natural Bridge Park to bring his vision to life. Out of all the stonehenge replicas in this country Foamhenge is rumored to be the most accurate when compared to the condition of the modern day original in England.  RoadsideAmerica.com reports that Mr Cline even went so far as to fact check his measurements and design with the man who gives tours at the original stonehenge.

zuzaWe have already decided to add next year's Renaissance festival at Foamhenge to our social calender. It's going to be mid September and the admission price will be 5 dollars. Enchantment Faire is the name it's going by and it looks like a lot of medieval fun complete with maypoles, human chess, and one thing I'm really looking forward to seeing close up...a trebuchet. You may even be given the opportunity to learn the secrets of casting a Gypsy love spell if you are able to capture the attention of Madam Zuza, but I urge caution when dealing with Mystics you've just meet.

We haven't even looked up online lately to see if it ever opened back up.
