    The forest critters will dispatch the yellow jackets now that I've dug into the nest so I'm planning on getting the red rock next weekend. Red rock here was what the locals hauled by wagon to the old foundry in Ironton, it's so rich in iron that if you heat it with a torch, the iron metal flows out of it.

    Red rock as it's called around here is an iron rich sandstone, almost purple.

    A historian here told me that locals would scavenge this and take it by the wagon load to Ironton and were paid cash for it. We found a big pile of it in the woods which the historian told us was probably some 1850s hillbilly's stash. The foundry at Ironton is long gone, but local iron production stopped with the introduction of the Bessemer process where iron was converted into steel in large quantities.
