    This is the first time I found a cemetery. I also found 3 old home sites.

    Wonderful pictures! Thanks so much for sharing those! The 'forgotten' cemetery is interesting too. Especially how long ago some of those folks were born. I'm wondering if any of the ascendants even know about it, are still in the area or even care?

    Thanks Tom! glad to be back, but can't wait for my next adventure into the deep woods. This time I'm leaving the kayak at home and stuffing my gear "a whole lot less this trip" into my favorite backpack and hit the trails hiking. This time Frank walks instead of riding. :)

    Thanks EC! You're very welcome. Your guess about the ascendants are spot on, but I doubt that anyone cares, because it is in an area that is so inaccessible that I bet know one has been there in the last hundred years or more. The plots with just a stone for a marker, has to be some of the first early settlers to venture into Ky. Just like the ancient old growth oak tree next to the Cemetery, I bet it's been there since the days before Daniel Boone hiked this area.

    I'm gonna Goggle and see if a can find me a Coonskin cap, just like Daniel Boone wore for my next adventure...:)

    I found an old original Coonskin cap. If I win the bid, I'm gonna wear it on my next adventure. I just hope it fits my big head.:)

    Getting my gear together and ready for my next hiking trip thru the deep woods of MCNP. Got everything loaded for a week on the trail. I just weighed the pack, it weighs 40.6 pounds and that's with 3 liters of water in the built-in hydration system. With the pack strapped to me, I weigh 240 lbs. Just waiting for the rain to clear out of the area, and waiting on my new head gear.:)

    Yea! I used to see them too, as a kid on our vacation trips. If I don't win the bid for the Coonskin cap on eBay, the next fresh road kill Racoon I see laying on the roadside, I'll take it to a Taxidermist and see if he can make my one. :)

    Maybe I can just strap a Coon tail on frank.
