Swamp Piles in Lincoln, MA

Like any sane mammal I want to stay near home on a cold day, and it takes this kind of circumstance to get me to want to explore in Lincoln - very near home - but Sunday it was 17 F with a bit of wind, so I went to a place called the Roger's Land which is between Brooks Rd and Sunnyside Ln in Lincoln. Stepped into the woods and there was a rock pile.
These are the ones that appear one-at-a-time or in small clusters where water comes out of the ground.Another view with a 2nd pile in the background:Closeup of that pile:
And nearby, a split-filled rock:Another scene. A spring with several structures:Some "gap"-type structures:Another split-filled rock:These were all in a small portion of the overall conservation land, just as you enter from the east from Brooks Rd.

Interesting site. Who the heck was Roger? He'd probably get credit for that beautiful stone row - I mean that typical colonial farmer's stone wall made during landclearing.
