Off the Trail

This Bearing Tree marker was right off the side of the trail. It was easy to spot and with Katie going slow I decided to stop and take a look. Bearing Trees, noting a corner of a property line date back to the 1800's where they would burn the tree, strip it of it's bark, and carve the survey information into the tree trunk. This one isn't quite that old (obviously), but it was fun to learn some history on surveying from this hike.
