Star of Wonder, Star of Night

Star of wonder, star of night
Star with royal beauty bright

Westward leading, still proceeding

Guide us to Thy perfect light

 The Star  
In this breathtaking photograph, Dara Hurt captured 
the star's beauty on a soft winter evening.

    The Älvkors, or Elf Cross, featured in The Keeper and the Rune Stone, is not the only star in the Camden Hills. Each Christmas season a star is mounted on the turret atop Mount Battie in Camden Hills State Park. The star is lit the evening after Thanksgiving and remains erected and lit each night until New Years Day. Bob Oxton climbs Mount Battie each night and starts the generator which illuminates the star. Neither rain, sleet, or snow have thwarted Bob - he's not missed a night in 40+ years.
