Wales Day 4- Powis Castle & Mitchell's Fold Stone Circle

Powis Castle is a red-rock castle in Wales. It was built in the early 1200's, and was occupied continuously until the last of the family died in 1952, and it was given to the National Trust. Unfortunately, photos were not allowed inside.
  Dad and I ate lunch at the Tea room there, and we explored the museum of artifacts that a resident of the house had collected from India.
After exploring there for a while, we traveled to a stone circle that we saw on the map.
Upon arriving, we realized it wasn't a particuarly impressive stone circle, but it is still fascinating that ancient people cared enough to move all those huge stones into a circle.

 We walked on a little ways and saw a cairn atop a nearby hill.
We then went back to the house and ate dinner.
