Golden

Sunday, we took the children to see Raven Cliff Furnace. Having seen iron and lead being smelted on Tudor Monastery Farm, I thought it would be a nice sort of field trip for them.  Leave it to me to send us on field trips to forgotten fields.

Raven Cliff

Here are the cliffs.  This was the first time I'd ever seen them.
Ravens have nested in them, and so they are named.
The place is so full of cliffs, I thought they were somewhere else.

Fencerow

It was idyllic, in many ways, the last of the truly warm weather.
We've settled into more seasonable, windy days now.
The first killing frost will probably come at the end of this week.

Raven Cliff Furnace

Here's the furnace.  Read about how they worked in the link above.
It has trees growing inside of it, which makes me frown.
I would think the Forest Service would take care of the site a little,
though I know that they are grossly understaffed.

Sycamore

There were many, many sycamore trees along the creek.
The children loved tossing them off the metal bridge and looking for them on the other side.

Cripple Creek

Golden leaves, golden weather, golden times with our dear children still young and full of wonder.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
