AMAZINGLY, EVEN DURING THE DRIEST SUMMERS THE PIPE RUNS FULL. THE PIPE COULD BE EASILY OVERLOOKED SINCE IT IS SITUATED BEHIND A CAMP WHERE A GATED STATE FOREST ROAD ENDS. AND THAT’S OKAY. NO DOUBT THE OWNERS OF THE CAMP FEEL THE SAME WAY. NO ELECTRIC LINES, AND KEROSENE LAMPS PROVIDE LIGHT AFTER DARK. WOOD OR COAL HEAT STILL PROVIDES WARMTH IN THE WINTER.
