A Couple of Mounds

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.
It's made up of dirt and rock. Then found this a couple of hundred feet away.
Nice size mound of dirt and rock overlooking the gap. Directly underneath it - could be a possible rock shelter.
This is steeper than it looks - which is why this picture isn't the greatest.

Quick Spin

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....

New Exploring Partner

Point Found Near Rockpile

I found this point last month on a trip up the mountain. I actually kicked it up with my boot. I don't really spend much time looking for points - since it's so darn hard on the eyes. What I thought was interesting was - that I found it a couple of hundred feet away from this:
