Secrets hidden in the Great Mountain Forest tell tales of days gone by
After tramping through the snowy woods on a bright winter afternoon, Saturday, Feb. 3, a group of hikers relaxed at a camp fire and had tea.
The hike through a section of the Great Mountain Forest (GMF), looking primarily at evidence of iron industry activity and the effects on the forest, was led by Jody Bronson, GMF’s forester, with scientists Charlie Canham, Bob Marra and Tom Stansfield.
There was a modest amount of snow, and ice underneath it. The hikers wore traction devices such as YaxTrax on their boots to avoid untimely slips.
