Summer Solstice at Stonehenge

I got the opportunity to go to the summer solstice celebration at Stonehenge! It was an amazing experience! It is the only time in the year when they take the fences down and you get to walk up close to the stones...you can tell from the pictures that people are really up close! There were reported to be around 20,000 people so there was just so much energy.  I went with Kathleen, Leslie, and Lindsey and we stayed on the grounds from 11:30 to 5:30 the next morning.  We stayed to watch the sun come up, although it was very cloudy so we didn't get to see the sun come through the stones.  It was still worth the rain, mud, and cold! 

*The video is of a man playing the bagpipes at the celebration. There was all kinds of different music! You can't see much in the video but you can get a feel for the energy!
