I haven't post much lately because I haven't had a lot to report. This week I was contacted by a reader (Jeff) that found stone piles on and around his land near Springwater NY. I was very excited when he sent me some pictures. Two of the cairns are quite large and well stacked. I have a feeling there might be a lot of these yet to be found in this area. I will post more information when I find out more.
Update: I went down to Springwater over April break and met Jeff and Gus. Nice guys. They found two large well formed stone piles just off their property and knew they were unusual. In researching them they found their way to this blog. I am glad they did. These are the tallest stone piles I have seen. Over ten feet. In addition to their original find I found another dozen less impressive pile that form a line extending North of their original find. If you look at the map you will notice that they follow a natural depression or shallow valley over the hill. We haven't explore to the South. I wouldn't be surprized if there aren't more stone piles in this area.
