Don’t fall in!


Here’s a hand-dug well abandoned in the woods of the piedmont. It’s about three feet across and was used during the early-to-mid-20th century.

NB: it’s only a bit more visible if you’re standing there.

    Have you read “Ursula, Under” by Ingrid Hill? It’s a wonderful book, set in part in the UP. It starts with a small child falling down an abandoned mine shaft. Then there was the child in 1985 or 1987 who fell down a well, which had a diameter of only 8″! I know it was one of those years, b/c I remember watching the news in the hospital after either Dan or Dave was born.
