Stonehenge is a big attraction. It is amazing and magical. But the number of standing stones that make up the place is so few, compared to Carnac. The Alignment at Carnac, thousands of standing stones, have been poking out of the ground since 4500 BC. Stones, some 18 feet tall, are in rows that stretch several kilometers. I visited them following a day at the cemetery at Omaha Beach. The impact was massive.
