Ukraine: Stone People on a trip of ours…





I was drinking my second cup of coffee and I thought about how old civilization is in this part of the world. I really do not know how old it is, I was just thinking about it… 🙂

In our travels we c0me upon interesting signs that point down side roads to special places. It was just such a sign on a trip several years ago that said turn here and go to – “Stone People”. So we turned and after about an hour down a goat trail. We saw the remains of a civilization that carved statues from sandstone. All I can show you is some of the statues and the big pile of sandstone that they used to carve figures from. Cameras are great for memories…

You hear about the whole world and how old the remains of man are in areas of the world. Very little is said about how old the people in Russia are and the surrounding areas. I can tell you that mankind is old, in these here parts…

Man has been carving statues in Ukraine and Russia a very long time…

Picture 1, 2 and 3 are stone figures that have been found and moved to help preserve from theft and destruction. They are near a security building so that a watchful eye can see what everyone is doing to them. They allow you to touch them and they are really cool. Picture 4 is my beautiful Wife on top of the sandstone used to carve from. Picture 5 is what we had to climb through to get to top of the sandstone mound…

Sveta and I have so much fun on our trips and we love to just take a side road to whatever! The side roads to whatever are where the fun is… 🙂
