A Found Granite Quarry

Buddy thinks there is something yummy to kill under the cut granite.

You can see the large seam of quartz in the granite.

We found an old granite quarry on my land last weekend. This quarry is not on the maps. John theorizes that it was an exploratory quarry and when seams of quartz were found, it was abandoned. But there is evidence that the granite cut here was taken off the mountain. See my Barton Mountain Granite Quarries Set for more information, history and maps.
