We had such a good time hanging out
there we almost forgot about the rest of our explorations that day,
heh. The guys were expecting a few friends to join them later, and
they were gonna hang out late into the night enjoying the night sky
and the beer and the fire and the ambience and... whatever. We were
invited to stay for the festivities, but as we had a few more places
we had planned on exploring in the area, we reluctantly tore ourselves
away finally and headed back down the mountain.
On the way down we saw some strange
sights, such as a HUGE
rock completely balanced on three small rocks (kinda like Tripod
Rock), and another gigantic rock that looked like it had been chopped
in half. Another bizarre thing we saw as we descended was what
looked just like an unmarked
grave alongside the wooded trail- eeep! I have no idea what
exactly it was, but the creepy, mounded, human-sized-grave-shape of it
gave us all goosebumps. We didn't linger there long.
All in all, the Stone Living Room is
really an amazing place. I hope it's still there for hundreds
more years. And if you're in the area, I highly recommend a visit.
And I also wanna send out a great big
thanks to the guys who were so very hospitable to us up there...
dammit, I can't seem to remember their names, but, THANKS
After we left the Living Room we
decided we had enough time to check out one more West Milford curiosity...
the mystery poles of Route 23...
