All,

Jessica and I were looking for stones and monuments today and while walking down a road we surprised a large Rattlesnake.




It also surprised us and something we did to avoid it really made it annoyed. It coiled up in a fraction of a second and for the first time we were able to hear the buzz. It really does sound like a buzz. It was prepared to strike and would have if we moved closer.








Larger view if you want to see it.

I acquired some of the field notes of Lebanon from as far back as the early 1930s and will be starting to look for incised stones and historical stones that you may find interesting. I am in the early stages trying to get my bearings and hopefully soon I will have some significant results. Today, I did find a stone that may help me find more.

I was all over Lebanon today and other places. No particular place in general there.

I was out this morning at 5AM and in the woods by 5:45. The vegitation was extremely wet and the trees were raining on me all morning, and I was soaked within 5 minutes of entering the woods. Really soaked!

Along the way I saw this.

Yes, I caught some of that wetness too. Do you remember that little tributary of Cedar Creek with the spring holes? I finally ran that down to where it enters Cedar Creek. It disappears several times before it gets there, but I kept on it. The woods were gloriously sunny and wet.
