Did you see the old plane crash site when you walked up from the road through the meadow? About 2/3 of the way up. In the 60's a single engine plane with 2 or 3 on board crashed head first into the mountain in an afternoon thunderstorm. You can still see remains and would have walked near it. My dad took us kids up in the old Willys the day after it happened and we found it, after the officials had cleaned up.
