Northwest of Gumpas Pond - Pelham NH

I drove up to New Hampshire, parked at the end of Growing Rd and walked northwest until I got to rock piles. There was a difficult beaver dam crossing on the way in, and a one-foot-in-the-water solution on the way out, but there does not seem to be too much to say about the rock pile site...another dot on the map:

But the piles were only on this last flat slope down to the water. There were none a few feet back. 
Here was an interesting feature:
Turtles on turtles, a feat of strength, something else?

This area used to be farms and farmland that got burned out in the 1930's when part of Nashua burned. Lots of old foundations.
