“Trees exhale for us so that we can inhale them to stay alive. Can we ever forget that? Let us love trees with every breath we take until we perish.”
― Munia Khan
I shot these images at the site of Stamping Mill built on the Green Limb Branch. Locally called “Tunking Mill” from the sound of the blows of heavy hammers.
Before the bog iron could be put into the blast furnace, it first went through the stamping mill to crush it and conform it to uniform, usable sizes for the furnace.
I have had many friends recommend this hike over the years but haven’t had the chance to get there. I finally did this summer and they were right! It was beautiful with all the falls. The hike was intense, huge incline, very strenuous but the whole hike was great. I wanted to keep going but I was running out of sun light and had no headlamp so, I will go back another day and camp out.
I did four of falls so I missed the rest, but there is always tomorrow.
It was totally worth the hike and the photographic views. I went on late afternoon so I had some great light.
