10.10.10 Elmer’s Lost Well

Removed lespedezia in front of hunter’s shed.  Mike mowed lespedeia at top of ridge before it could go to seed.

Elmer's lost well.

When we first were considering the property, my husband Mike and Elmer (one of the fellas we eventually bought this property from) walked all over looking for this well.  For the past year, every time we took a hike, we kept our eyes open, hoping to catch a glimpse of the fabled hole in the ground.  Kinda gave up hope of finding it after several months went by.  Today we finally found the lost well.  It is a beautiful hand dug construction, maybe 35-40 feet deep, lined in small, carefully stacked granite boulders.  It would be a bitch to fall into, however.
