Up to my old tricks

One of my favorite things about the woods is finding the unexpected.  Around here conservation land usually has a past, meaning it hasn't always been conservation land.  A lot of it has been logged, farmed, lived on, mined and used for lots of other things, often yielding up its secrets decades later.  This bridge isn't...
