More rock piles from Middle TN near the AL line

This one seems to be focal point, at top. However, there is at least one beyond it though the terrain dips a little.We will photograph the designation number with the pile- just by laying a sheet of paper/index card saying pile A, b1, etc. That way we can correctly match photos and designation.

More leaves so some we didn’t catalogue- couldn’t tell if natural or man-made. Also in the mid-70s so still poisonous snakes still out (one killed one of the goats this summer).

From the North series- looking up, I saw nothing of particular interest. The lowest N pile is not far from mnt edge looking down at run-off or a currently dry creek—but that was so obvious, I doubt anyone marked that…
Age of old road unknown, now cleared for horseback riding
[Added by PWAX: Look how the piles are rectangular with a square hole]Going back down hill, there is a crop of boulders—similar to one on next mnt. Just natural occurrence as far as we know. Have no clue if this is in any way related:RP terrain dip after the pinnacle one:

Looks like an earthen mound in the last picture.

In any case I am impressed with the number of large rock piles that seem to have a familiar hollow in them. It is the "Wachusett Tradition" in TN. Taking another form there.
