    Yesterday I visited the Tri-County Marker in a bushwhack off the Oswegatchie traverse trail, west of Lows Lake. I came prepared with a tube of silicone cement because a number of years ago an old scouter(aka "Marmaduke") familiar with the area and with me, gave me a brass plaque for one of the counties that had fallen off. Rather than let it be stolen he gave it to me because he knew that I had been there prior to that and would return again one day as I use the location as a student guide M&C navigation training challenge. So I took a tube of sealant and replaced it at my next opportunity a year or so later. I am happy to report that as of yesterday it is still firmly in place, and no others have dropped off from the steel post they are attached to either.

    That's all for now. Take care and until next time...be well.

    I always hope someone donates them to the Tupper Lake or Blue Mt Lake Museum....or even Wanakena...

    I still wonder what happened to AA Lows bronze tombstone markers for his dogs that were along the upper damn spillway...stolen I bet, but I hope someone saved them...

    Horseshoe Lake maple syrup industry / artifacts

    Is there any maps and information on the horseshoe lake town? Fire took out that region but it would be interesting to know what was where. Artifacts is the lake maybe?
