i was amazed because it looked like they were cut, had nice straight sides and top. my buddys told me thats nothing, get on top, so i did and couldnt believe it. the rocks were set in a way that it looked like a giant foundation.
there were 4 of them in a perfect square and the seems were about 6" apart but perfectly allined and on one end there were 2 sticking out about 10' apart like a foundation for a garage.

there were a bunch of these formations in the area, it was a flat area on top of a mountain with trees all around that were 20 to 30 inches across so they are old trees and some were growing in the center of the foundations.
to this day it boggles my mind as to how they got like that and why so many.
That is interesting I found the same on a hill outside of Marienville Pa years ago. Only one set of stones seemed to be steps in a semi circle that ended at a stone that seemed to be an alter. I called the archeology dept at Penn St and they weren't interested. Go figure.

I found an old model A ford once while hunting many years ago.
As a young boy I spent a summer in Missouri with my Dad. He was inspecting on a pipe line back then. We found an old home way back off the beaten trail in the Ozarks. The house, barn and other outbuildings were still intact and all of the furnishings were still in the house. Also had an attic full of canned goods. A complete wagon was in the barn with many tools also. One room in the house had dozens of letters scattered across the floor that were from a WW11 soldier. I still have an old hymnal I found in the house. We found out later on that the family members were all there one day in the early '50's and the next day were all gone leaving no trace at all and taking none of their belongings with them. I remember it was a long hike to the old place up an old dried out riverbed. Anyway, that was a strange experience for a young boy. Bob.

When I was younger, I found the bowl of an old white clay pipe and a glass laundry bluing bottle. I was just hiking around in the woods looking for snakes to take pictures of, and stumbled onto a strange looking area near a pond. It was strange because it looked like there was a hillside that was carved out by something. So I just started poking around in the hillside, which was about 2-3 feet down from ground level. I found this pipe buried in the dirt and was pretty surprised. The bottle was found in a clay pit nearby. After visiting the county historical society, I learned that the site was an old iron works, situated near an abandoned rail road track. Nowdays, the tracks are gone and replaced with a really nice biking/running/recreational trail. I still have the pipe and bottle.

I always try to imagine the life that people had in homes like that....It makes a person realize how lucky (i guess) we are to have modern conveniences....

Heavy duty corrigated metal sheets wraped around tree trunks 50' in the air. Must have been one heck of a tornado.

As a teen we hiked a few times up near Deadwood where my Dad's girlfriend owned a cabin. We stumbled upon many interesting things including remains of an old church. It was pretty cool up there.

Once while riding near Balck Diamond WA I came upon a coal mine ventilation shaft that is 1300 feet straight down approx 16feet by 22 feet that had been sealed over using rebars so nothing could fall in.. Just down from that in the middle of no where was a beatufiful area with flowers and ivy all over.. until I noticed a small Rod Iron fence, then a Head Stone. It was the old town of Franklin WA (Unknown to me at the time) I had just come upon their old cemetary, that was long forgot in the early 1990's. Little creepy, but interesting history from coal mines at the turn of the century.

last week I found some shooting sticks
Thanks
Did search on that and this is what I came up with
We later learned that, in 1923, a man was hired and paid by Millard County to construct a windmill site for the generation of electricity in nearby communities and farms. Unfortunately, before construction was completed, this character disappeared with the money, leaving behind the skeleton that remains today. Needless to say, the money was gone, the man was gone, so the windmills never materialized. They figured he'd headed south for Mexico to enjoy his ill-gotten fortune.

Pics are on the site

I found a knife stuck in a tree. It had been there a long time. It was real rusty and the wooden (I assume) part of the handle was long gone. It was kind of like a bowie knife or Kabar, but wasn't either one exactly. About half of the length of the blade was buried in the tree and was impossible to pull out. Probably wasn't stuck in too deep when it was first left there, but I guess the tree kind of grew around it. Not weird, I know, but when I see something like that I try to imagine how long it had been there, why it was stuck there, who may have done it and why it was left. I'm thinking someone stuck it there temporarily and then walked off to do something and then could never find it again.
