Searched Laughery Creek Valley for some old trees that settlers would not cut down to shade live stock or use for fire wood.Saw some possible big trees up on a hill side but could not find the land owners.Got lost and ended up in Rising Sun In.Back in Aurora I stopped at Great Crescent Brewery http://www.gcbeer.com/
No luck finding any old growth I did find a real unfiltered Kolsch in Great Crescent's Blonde Ale! At $4.00 a pint it was the best find of the day.
I had a hunch that after a wet week two days of sun would dry out the grass enough to mow.I went back to the farm that I saw some possible finds and sure enough the bush hog and rider mower where out.After getting permission,I headed up the hill side into the woods and sure enough what I thought I saw I saw.These Oaks are on private land and require permission from the landowner to visit.
