I need to learn this area better
The one I missed sort of shocked me. I thought to myself, "**** yeah you've found em." Lmao
But as you know, I sure as heck didn't.
I bushwacked and fished up from where the trail leaves the creek and sort of splits into a dry gulley on the left, a trickle in the middle and the main flow on the right. But it was getting dark and I was alone in the woods, so I decided to head back.
I'm determined to find them whenever I can get back down there. Which is soon I hope. Living 25 mins from the clinch I tend to gravitate there.
