I cannot believe it has been 12 years since the disaster in NYC. I hope time has helped those affected.
This morning it was another hot and muggy one. Dolly and Fergie decided to stay in the AC while I ventured several miles up the road to the Millstone Bluff Archaeological Area. 1500 years ago a clan of Indians lived on a bluff in this area.
It is about a half mile walk through the area. It took a lot of imagination to see what the signs were trying to point out. I could see a shallow grave at the cemetery.
There were depressions in the ground where the homes were located and a large clearing where the council lodge was located and a large depression where the council lodge was located.
After leaving, I headed toward the Marina, but took a side road to see the origin of the “Trail of Tears”. Kept going thinking I would come out near the Ohio River but no such luck. After wandering around on the back roads for an hour I finally had to stop and ask a guy mowing his lawn how to get to Golconda. I was over 20 miles away and still not close to finding it. With his directions I was able to get to the Marina.
Spent several hours with Doug, Carrie and her mom, Jean. Had a nice visit. We are heading out in the morning so wanted to spend time with them.
