You make "stirring the soils" sound easy. Sometimes it's even hard to dig a cathole in the adirondacks because of the matted roots!

It's twenty minutes from my house too -- I've removed some graffiti from rocks up there, and been witness to at least a couple of parking lot parties. It's becoming more well-known, unfortunately. ...
