The green line shows the approximate boundary of the 285 acre property. The blue lines are the two creeks on the property (Seller's Creek and Dorsey Branch). The interior loops represent my hikes on the property. The red flag at the upper right marks the primary entrance to the property via the easement. The yellow flag marks a second entrance. The primary entrance is pictured below, as is the requested proof that I actually went on the property. Click on any of the small photos to see a larger version.


First Visit photos - here are just a few pictures from the "white" loop, half of which follows a 4-wheel trail.

Dorsey Branch loop photos - As you get closer to Dorsey Branch, you begin to encounter areas of water which are 2 or 3 inches deep. Eventually, there is water everywhere at a depth of 2 inches to 5 inches until you reach the branch itself (last two photos).

Central loop photos - I had hoped to reach the Western border of the property on this trip. I was blocked by a creek before reaching the border, but I had not gone nearly far enough to reach the part of Seller's creek shown west of the property line. On the map, the path I take heading southward follows beside a curly pattern in heavier green. I was following a creek at the time so I believe the darker green section to be a creek which is un-named on my map. I did wind up at the spot on the southern border of this section where I had intended. I'll try to get through that break to the north of the dark green on another trip and see if I can find any property markers where I believe they should be (I didn't see any on my walk to the west and to the south until I hit the southern border). The following pictures were taken while headed west.

The remaining photos were taken as I progressed southwards. The last picture is of a beaver dam that was found at my southernmost position, not actually on my property. I did not take any photos while returning to the truck because it was beginning to get dark.

Southwest Gate loop photos. The loop follows a well defined 4-wheel trail. In addition to the loop, I walked from the gate to the western corner. The route follows a fence that marks the property line. When I got to the western corner, I turned north for a while hoping to find a trail going back into the property, but there was none. There are a few pictures taken from just off the property along the western edge showing how thick the growth is there.

Two photos from just off the property on the western edge. Also a gate that will be replaced.
East side loop photos. This is a very nice section of the property. The property line is partially marked by intermittent strands of barbed wire. There are also flags. On part of the loop there are defined trails and there are a couple of hunting plots just off the property to the east. In one section there are large red paint marks on the trees to mark the property line. There are also some flags which don't quite match up with the red paint marks. The red paint marks agree with my map, but there is not much difference. I saw one fat and fast rabbit and some deer scat.
