Lots of trees have come down in the glen since the derecho last summer so fording the creek is no longer possible at one point and I had to detour following a new path the deer have created. I did return to the second ford of the creek just to see it. And what did I spy there?
A shard of an old pot.
After pulling out that piece I checked further up stream and found this smaller piece.
And this one.
Here is what I saw on the front. From that I can picture the wide mouth pottery jar.
I know there is a trash pile somewhere upstream because we have found other artifacts. I'll have to put on boots and go looking again very soon before the leaves and the bugs return. Something to look forward to.
