An old wooden spoke wheel used in the Stohl Lake sawmill north of Cloyne. This was found in an old dump site south of Stohl Lake by the the narrow road along the Lake.
Burnt red pine stump. This fir killed this red pine. Frequently large pine, oak and hemlock can withstand fire to a certain degree due to the thick bark. Heavy seeding normally occurrs after a fire regenerating the stand stand to pine, oak and hemlock. This tree was unable to do so. A large number of fires swept through the country side from the mid 1800's into the early 1900's. Many of these fires escaped landowners trying to clear brush and debris to start farming. Large pine, oak and hemlock that survived these fires with scarring are said to have church doors. The following photo illustrates that.
