A closeup of the Welcome Center chimney. It was built using a dry mortar technique, which leaves the joints open between the stones. The stonemason spent three days getting the stone shapes just right before he began the actual assembly of the chimney; the pile of stone in the foreground is the remnants of his work. Photo taken in July 2002.
