Out hunting some old ground where there was once some summer homes but they had been taken down maybe back in the 70's. Summer homes were active in the 40's. Area itself was active through the 1800's. It's a 2 mile hike to get to the area where I found an old lock and brass book photo pendant. Photos inside are long deteriorated but at least I was able to open it up without braking it. There is so much debris from the old structures you really have to go slow and pick through. Iron nails are dense.

Used my Multi Kruzer this run which has great separation but will probably use my Tejon next time out. Sites like this it is tough to beat the old analogs.
