      ps.  I went to google maps,  and knowing just where to look,  I was amazed to see that the wagonroute could be seen by satellite.
      I have been using Google maps for a few years and here is a great article I read last year about it's use by professional archaeologists http://www.archaeolife.blogspot.com/...gle-earth.html

        I think it is facsinating the trail can be seen from satellite. I have used Google and back in the old days Terraserver with success. It is a very good tool, I'm surprised it took the Pros so long to figure it out LOL.

          :laugh:  :laugh:   Yeah, Chris,  I thought about that when I saw it.  Didn't think
          it was the most flattering picture of my dog.  She really is a beautiful dog. 
          Here she is waiting for me to get tired of looking.   

          Had to post this after the last image of her.

                Thats some great history that needs explored better. Liked Hosses idea of metal detecting the ares you never know what was lost or thrown away. I know couple years back at a old town site we have here somebody picked up a gold coin. Bet the guy who lost it was really pissed at himself. Lot of money back then. Great pics and great lookin shorthair.

                  Thanks spanky.  You're right about exploring further.  I'm really just getting
                  started into all this.  It's a new hobby for me.  One thing leads to another and
                  voi'la  all of a sudden you hit on something. Who knows,  the old guy
                  could have had a whole bag of gold buried there. Thanks for the dog compliment.

                      Man, you live in an interesting area. Can't wait to see pictures of the old fort and the bag of gold coins you dig up at the old homestead!

                        I hope you get to use your new metal detector. Mine has 3 levels on it for metals. I went about a month ago where I have permission and forgot to put it on all 3  . I was only on one level and it started to rain so I left. I still have to go back yet and do it again to make sure I didnt miss anything. The owner says I can dig if I hit a hot spot which I hit a few but didnt dig cause I want him to be there, just out of respect seeing it is his property and its kinda close to his house but on the river bank. He has told me that there use to be an old rail road that went through his property before there was roads for driving. I hope to go back in the next few weeks.

                                Dont forget iron! Riffles are iron. They can be worth the price of gold. Good Luck and I hope you find some thing.
