Old Indian Cave/Waterfalls at Gid
Don't let anybody EVER tell you that you won't encounter snakes in the woods in December in Izard County!
I heard the gist of a story about the people who operated the mill at Gid as I was watching at least four bald-eagles fighting in a pasture this weekend. The landowner stopped on the road and discussed both the eagles (which he and his family feed from the carcasses of fur-bearers they trap together) and some history of the area. I'm not the only one who loves this county and its geographical, biological, and historical delights.
When I get the whole story, I'll post it. It sounds like a great story about tragedy in a mid-winter storm.
Sorry about the quality. I MUST get better equipment!
