Ha! Right you are Al. And now that you mention it, I have seen that used, although not sure if it is done consistently. A good reminder that there's always something to learn.
Never knew there was such a thing as an "indefinite contour" either!

Didn't we go very near that hill(ish) on our Alquatka Trip? (edit: no, after looking closer, we did not get down that far.)

are any of these stones the one we have looked for several times one time of which i caught a black rat snake near where the stone should have been?I t was very bad briars along the edge of the meadow.All,
We revisited the Hayland Hill area today and stopped by a few of the stones, and I tried to take a photo across the Mullica at hay landing but it is just too overgrown. However, I did get a photo taken near the old Shamong/Medford stone looking up the rise of Hayland Hill.

This area is not well known at all and is mostly frequented by motorcycles where they can ride without any interference by anyone. When Jessica and I was there years ago we were walking the trail and could hear them coming towards us. I stepped into the woods fairly far but Jessica just stepped off the trail. The first two riders sailed right on by without seeing her but the third one turned his head like an owl trying to figure out what she was doing out there. I can imagine what he told the other two when they stopped for a break. We still laugh about that one.
Anyway, we saw both gloves in two different places pointing the direction or maybe telling us off. Don't really know Notice it is nailed.

This is the Job Braddock stone that we revisited today. Job acquired the property on March 11, 1854.

This survey is from 1878 showing a "Stone on a coal pit bottom."

And here is that stone. It made it through the heat of a coal pit and is still around 155 years later.

And the Shampng/Medford Township stone again. I believe that is a separate stone in the front but can't really tell. The stone is a foot thick.

And we again looked for this stone and could not find it. The area is fairly clear so it is either gone or underground. It is right at Hay Landing.

And each time we go it is always nice to visit here.
