 We’ve been staying in the area of Lake Placid for the last several days. Yesterday we hiked a rather drizzly but very enjoyable trail around Copperas Pond. At one point, we came upon a lean-to shelter created for campers. Inside, the shelter was covered with carvings of the various visitors. This again is the most common type of markings I’ve come across – especially here in the east. But I am bit surprised at how few markings I am finding. Is it because so much of this land is privately owned? Being so much more densely populated than the west, I might have expected many more markings. Perhaps because of density and ownership, the opposite is true.
