It was a long walk to Humason Brook in May of 1998 but I wanted to see the "trestle in the woods" that everyone was talking about.  I followed the grade from Sheepscot and it was all thick woods from Sutters North.  There was a large mud hole where Hall's crossing is now.  I had to go up the hillside to go around it.  I thought the black flies would carry me away but the hike was worth it.  It was really something to see an original WW&F trestle.

The second photo was taken in April of 1999.  I wanted a view of the grade in the same place as the photo of the Cockeye Curve wreck.  The wreck photo is the November shot in the 2006 WW&F Calendar.
