Near the end of finishing up my perimeter work, I came across my first complication in my work with the glen. I was traveling off-path and basically beating the bushes as I did my best to follow the line from large tree to another. I had no idea where the line would lead next though it appeared to be aiming at another large tulip poplar dead ahead. Sure enough, the line held steady, touching the back edge of the tree, placing most of it within the perimeter. As usual, I began to see if the line connected onward or did it turn at the tree? It continued onward.
As I stepped forward the next few feet the rods took a very unusual turn to the right. It was more of a twitch or a jerk, actually. It was not something that I had seen with this type of work and I retraced my steps to be sure. Yes, it was still there and the rods took me on an odd curving angle towards another tree and then turned a hard right 90 degrees. They then held steady. I retraced things to confirm and yes, it was correct.
Taking another step, I saw that I was coming up on one of the walking paths that cuts through the woods. As I took another step I saw a flash of bright red under some brush.
