No.28: Three Birches. A bit of living history, one of eight homesites here at Fourpeaks high valley, Bert Williams told me years ago some kin of Halsey Straight lived there in the 20's. Too poor for a cellar, they put their home right on the road below his place. Just beyond Camp Field, find it today where our Jeep Road, Perkins (Stonehouse) Road and Zig-Zag all converge. CLICK for map. A pretty spot by 'Deer Watch'" with appple, pine and three (count 'em) paper birch.

We well remember the visitor who complained about the unpleasant glare from the HTML default royal blue links. That lead us to entirely revamp our background and link colors, making them softer, more eye pleasing. And the Florida expert who warned us about frustrating visitors with blind links. We followed his advice and now carefully identify links so visitors know before they "click" exactly where they're clicking to. Your comments or suggestions will be equally appreciated.
