One more site that Jim Porter showed us, high on a hillside looking southeast out over a lake. I thought this was a marker pile site. My report:
Following Jim Porter we drove back to the highway....Pond. We followed a trail around the west side of the pond and then uphill to a bald spot, where we began seeing things, and then on up into a mountain laurel woods with piles all around.You can see the pond down hill on the right, with a southeast view over it. You may not be able to see it but every larger rock in the picture is wedged up. I told Jim later I would have considered it a successful day out if we had only seen this bald spot.
Just above, the piles started in earnest.By this time [after the day at the Miner Farm] my camera was full. Also I was burned out from seeing such wonderful piles. This last place reminds me of a number of marker pile sites.Jim tells us that this is only the edge of a vast site. Gosh they have nice stuff down in southwestern Rhode Island.
