I did go through my photos and found the album from when I found and followed the Petty Cutoff a few years ago. I did take a picture of the ford, but it appears to be at a different angle than...

Ditto St.Regis. Base of coals, with wet, rotten wood and bark on top. Try to completely cover the coals with the rotten wood and bark so that you can't see any embers (this will make more smoke). ...

I also would question the accuracy of the listed date of this photo. In 1965, Rondeau's would've already been abandoned for ~15 years. Yes this photo appears to show more of Rondeau's "firewood...
