Why should the beautiful die?


Along the Tom the Tinker Trail

The Tom the Tinker Trail runs beside a gurgling stream through a narrow valley in the Kane Woods Nature Area. The trail is named for a fictional character in the Whiskey Rebellion: farmers who paid the whiskey tax would receive threatening notes signed “Tom the Tinker.”

Yes, there is a manhole cover in the middle of this idyllic scene. A sewer line runs down the hill through the stream valley.

All through the woods we can see evidence that there was once a little community tucked into this narrow valley. Above, a ruined foundation clings to the side of the gorge.
