Also, there is a new generation that is finding High Rock as intriguing as we all have. Gunner kept insisting that he wanted to see "The Excavator," and his G kept telling him that the excavator was "gone." He and Duncan played on the trailer in the barn lot and hid in the hay bales,
and suddenly...there it was...sticking up over the tops of the trees out in the lane..."The Excavator," after all! (In reality, it was a track hoe, but that was of little consequence to them.) These little boys may have climbed under the big downed oak to get to it,
and they also may have climbed on it just to say they did. Thank you, Uncle Wiggly, for that moment of delight.
May many more generations find this special place hidden between the Yadkin River and the Flat Swamp Mountains in Piedmont, NC.
