What A Week in the Field

It has been quite the week.

Wednesday, June 13, 2017, was a real big “finding” day. In the morning I found one of the Calhoun Rocks painted rocks, and two Munzees. I took a Letterboxing trip to the cemeteries in Cassville and Kingston. The find of the day was a structure on Hall Station Road about a mile and a half from Kingston The structure or ruins appear to be the only extant structure of the Williams Cement Company double kiln…a pre- Civil War business venture in north Georgia. Apparently there is a rock formation that can be mined for an ore from which cement is produced.

I also found Geocaches along this trip.

On June 15, 2017 We went to the top of Horn Mountain ..opposite John’s Mountain ..to find a Geocache GC6DA6 – A Surprise on Horn Mountain. That was quite the adventure. We were took Forest Road 231 to the top of the ridge where the old road bed crosses the ridge.  We would have never taken this trip in the past. BUT with our little orange jeep we are fearless!

The top is lined with a narrow strip of large and medium boulders. There is a geology lesson there. There is also a botany lesson to he developed.

When I got to the cache the ridge top was enveloped in a cloud…this was kind of surreal.
