Finger Lakes Trail Geocache

I went Geocaching today on a hill that I have searched for stone piles for the last ten years with no luck. Low and behold right next to the cache site there was a large cairn. With a little exploring I found a line of 13 cairns that followed a ridge line. I had a feeling that there were cairns somewhere on this hill. I had found cairns on the hilltops to the East and to the West of this area. Some of these cairns were quite large. There was a unique pile or set of piles where two stone piles actually touched they were so close together. I will add a video clip next week. It is always exciting to find a site like this. It is nice to know that I can practice archeology right in my own backyard.
