The structure that the explorer believes himself to have found is known as a dolmen, but what exactly is that?

You're probably familiar with England's Stonehenge monument, and the rocks stacked on top of one another there are considered to be dolmens. Dolmens are also known as portal tombs and in addition to being in England, have been found all over Western Europe, Russia, Korea, and Indonesia.

In addition, some say that dolmens have metaphysical powers and are a portal to another dimension. So, did this explorer really find one in Colorado?
