week6-rocksI’ve been busy and sick and we’ve had bad weather so it’s not surprising I’ve missed a week! Nevertheless here is a photo I took of an old deteriorating stone wall the other day while out and about with Emma.

I decided to take her to the waterfall along Spring River at Kellogg Lake park in Carthage. I drive past it all the time but have never stopped to investigate. Turns out it’s a kind of a neat area! This, as with many other things in Carthage is a reminder of how things used to be done. It’s pretty rare to see a wall such as this made of rectangular cut stones. These days at best you may see retaining wall blocks, but most commonplace is just a poured slab of concrete.

Not one of those “wow” photos, but I still think it’s interesting.
