One of the Tow Hill Ponds in the Scotia Barrens
Flurries were flying across the landscape, as my daily walk took me up Tow Hill and down the knife edge to one of the bigger ponds on our end of the Barrens. According to my Purple Lizard Map of the Scotia Barrens, this is known as one of the Tow Hill ponds, from when Andrew Carnegie's town of Scotia was the scene of iron ore mining, from the 1880s to the 1940s. This pond used to be an ore pit, back in the day. Now it is full of water. On this particular day, it sure looked and felt like WINTER, as the snow flew.
Here is our soundtrack song: Steve Miller Band, with Wintertime.
