|Flat Ledge Quarry|
Tuesday 'R' and I took a late afternoon walk to explore Flat Ledge Quarry. The quarry is part of the water supply and is posted No Trespassing. And there is a rather large gate...with a well-trodden path around the side of it. Didn't seem to matter to the other folks wandering around in there!

Flat Ledge has always been a spot that I wanted to explore and 'R' and I did quite a tour on the beaten paths...and off, which was not a particularly smart thing to do as I managed to pick up a hitchhiking tick. Yuck.

Anyway, we took lots of photos and decided that a revisit in morning sunshine might be good. Well, that is until I found that tick...I'm not sure I'll be venturing back in there very soon! Still, I'm really glad we did the walk. The bridge and the old quarry are impressive. The smaller 'motions' (little quarried areas done as kind of moonlight jobs by some quarrymen) were fascinating with cool green pools and trickling water down glistening rock cliffs.

Another local adventure!
