All,

This morning I headed to the Atsion area to check on the Lady's Tresses. They are always in the same spot until today. They got mowed.

However, I was able to walk for a while and discovered one where we saw a hundred in years past.

I drove to Atsion, Hampton Furnace and then to Tabernacle to meet up with some really nice folks that gave me a tip on a township stone that was abandoned in 1901 when the township of Tabernacle was formed. The stone before 1901 was the intersection of Shamong, Woodland, and Southampton Township. We spoke for a while and they took me across private property to the stone embedded in the root of a large tree.

While there, they spent almost an hour taking me to various interesting places all around the property. This is Bread and Cheese Run which you may have heard about from Beck's chapter titled "From Bread And Cheese Run To Apple Pie Hill."

Is thats stream walkable? Looks like a sand bottom?
At this point it is but I don't know about other places. I have an invite to go back in the fall or winter and Jessica and I will be doing that. I took about 50 photos of different things but will not post them. It is private property and I don't want people going there because of me.

I did summer school this year but we just finished up; I have about 2 and a half weeks until we go back so I'm free until then. Let me know when you want to go out.
