Two Magic Mountains

In Burns Park, March 2006, Miriam and Tom at the top of "Magic Mountain" -- this mountain is nearly 20 feet high. The story is that in the 1920s, a racetrack occupied the space where the park playing fields are now. The central mound was leveled, the resulting dirt piled up, and a promise was made to come back and remove it. However, Michigan is so flat that children began to use it as a sledding hill, a climbing hill, and a fun, magic place.

Here is an up-to-date view, illustrating the size of the Burns Park Magic Mountain (note the tennis court fence just behind it):

In the Alps, July, 2006, Alice and Evelyn. You can see that Tom knows about REAL magic mountains!
