Pellet burner worked like a charm, need to patent it.

Too many people in the park, millions of them came in from chicagoland :roll: Campground was booked solid for sat and sun. I could only stay one night....Friday :roll: had to come home early :roll: but!!!!! I did find an archeological site where the "ancients" dwelled. It's a multi dwelling site and the earliest habitation is "archaic" I got videos, now all I have to do is load them :roll:

Did you find any artifacts at the site?

No recognizable artifacts, only chips of flint from when they made flint tools. The area is thick with underbrush(Chinese Honeysuckle :roll: ) Along the very edge of the sandstone bluffs it's not to bad. Nice views from the edge overlooking the wetlands towards the north. Lots of pelicans landing in the ponds below where this photo was taken.
