The OFM tries really hard to SEE everything around him. He actually does a pretty good job most of the time. However this next event was a couple of days ago. It happened behind the fish cleaning facility near the boat ramp.

We have been here many times over the years and the OFM has no reasonable excuse for it taking so long for him to notice these items.

The pipe in the circle is not really hard to see once proper attention is paid to actually looking at what is in front of him. The next picture is a close up of the pipe. We could not tell why it was there or its purpose.

When we stated to move away to the trail entrance, the OFM suddenly froze and stared. There is another pipe in there he said. Here it is.

We still had no idea what they were for. But on moving around a bit we found a spot clear enough to identify what the pipes are for.

They are lantern hooks like at some of the campsites.

Now what used to be there in the now overgrown scrub brush is well beyond our ability to guess. However we do plan to question some of the old timers around the park to see if they know what used to be there.

Finding old things in a state park is normally a pretty neat way of trying to have tooooo much fun.
