I took a winter walk through the woods near my home this week. Harley was my steadfast companion. We found numerous human artifacts and we would like to share a few with you.

I didn't need no stinkin' divining rod to find an easy source of water for the cabin. Most of the pottery shards and jars were found uphill from here.

Occasionally I got goosebumps while crawling around the homestead. Don't know why...

There is quite a bit of evidence that this homestead is visited by 4 wheel drive vehicles, both large and small... so I am not alone in my find.

Harley stands guard in case a rogue bear or witch comes after me. Be afraid, be ver afraid of Harley.
