Backpacking to Scripture Rocks
My brother came home for the weekend to visit and for something different to do, we decided to try out hands at geocaching. Well, that sucked, but the backpacking gave us lots of beautiful scenery.
We headed off to Brookville to try and find Scripture Rocks. Scripture Rocks are the result of years of religious zeal and a chisel. Well, probably many, many, chisels. Rock outcrops in this area are covered with literally thousands of lines of biblical scripture that have been carved into them nearly a century ago.
We never did find the cache. It's in an area that is party central. There were tons of beer bottles and several dog skulls (or at least I think they were dogs). Not far from that site, is an illegal dump with computers, TVs and other trash. So sad to see the beauty of the forest destroyed by unthinking mutants.
UPDATE: Thanks to an observant reader (Coy at Country Captures) who knows more about such things than I do, the skull is not a dog, but a white tailed deer - no doubt a doe.
We never did find the cache. No biggie. We found one of the trees covered with scripture and Randy, Todd & Arielle found a couple of the carved rocks. By the time we got to the area where the rocks were, I wasn't able to make the six plus-mile round trip. Mom & I ordered pizza and ran and picked it up while the others kept hiking. Besides the rocks, the trail had 17 severed heads for people to find. I saw two before we turned around.
