History Livis in the WMNF

August 04, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I had a wonderful day with two Forest Service staff,  Dan and Jonathan.  They invited me to join them as they surveyed WMNF land for historic landmarks, ruins and what was left of buildings.  We saw lots of glass bottles, some remarkably in tact.  Jonathan was able to have a general idea of the dates by the manufacturing techniques of the artifacts we saw.  My Knowledge of cars helped identify Some parts, and understand what we had seen in the woods.  Bottles, cans cars, even an old evaporator for sap!  Old cellar holes filled with trees and ferns growing every which way.  It was fun exploring the sites long abandoned in Landalff in the WMNF.  I was surprised by how far some of the items got dispersed.  Hub to a wooden wheel was a hundred feet from the steel rim.  Body and frame were 20 feet apart on that old Ford. 

My Hair has been chopped in preperation for Monday's Hike up the Northernmost White Mountain 4000 foot peak, Mt Cabot to a little cabin at the summit.  I am hoping to get the Milky Way moving along the sky.  Of course Ill post what I find.
