Sinking Creek Mountain VA

“Along the ridge I passed a pile of rocks, not randomly scattered but intentional…then another… then another.  My ATC Trail Guide calls this area Bruisers Knob and explains that farmers cleared fields on the mountaintop, stacking them to make way for crops and for other uses.  I’ve seen long stacked stone walls and fences in the woods before, but not dozens of piles of rocks in such close proximity…Some stacks were quite neat, as though they had been completed recently…”
