The weather has been great for searching - too bad I have not been finding much - except for this possible structure. I am standing along the ridge line of the Conemaugh Gap.

Just a beautiful day to be in the woods. RJ wanted to ride on the back of what I call bear rock - with cub rock on the lower right.
This juts out more than it appears - I was running out of card space at this point. Besides this picture isn't the greatest - it was just a hard place to shoot.
RJ peeking around the other opening. I will be going back to take better pictures of this structure in the future.

Exploring an area along the top edge of the Conemaugh Gap. This possible structure caught my eye. It's made up of three large stones - and a dip in the ground - which is where I think they got the dirt of the oval type mound.

Took the Ruck up the mountain for a quick spin - in a spot I have never been before. Parked - looking for signs of rockpiles and found....

I find this possible structure so interesting. Sort of looks like a cross between a tadpole and a turtle. It's a low to the ground wall (tail) and it has a rounded end - that looks like the head of a turtle. Given the history of this piece of land - there was a Native American woman married to a free African-American man around 1800. She along with their eight children died before 1820. This area also has a large wall along with a couple of rockpiles and what's lefdt of a very large and old chestnut tree.

It was just a beauitful day for being in the woods. Spotted this large, mess of a rock mound right off the bat.
RJ is standing on what's left of am old military road that probably dates from the French and Indian War.
Showing off a section of the originial Mountain Road - that dates to at least 1774 according to 'Frontier Forts of Western Pennsylvania'.
I just can't seem to ever stay from this stone skull - I always take a couple of shots of it when passing this way.
I think I am about the only one that thinks this is something - and I always will.
This is the first mound I ever found many years ago and it will always continue to be my favorite. This is about 1/2 mile from the stone skull.
Closeup - but around the other side
A hollow - that looks like it was built that way.
Found this new small rockpile nearby.

Just a beautiful day to head out for a little rockpile hunting - at the beginning of the Conemaugh Gap - Haws Pike side. Thought this was neat - boulder with a little fossil action going on.
