Would love to see some photos from your trips in the 70ies, Michael, have you seen the old houses, shelter on the way and suspension bridge out to she sea stack?
Not quite sure what you mean she sea stack.
But yes, There was still a big old farmhouse up in the field above Hansen lagoon in 1970. It had a fireplace and people were slowly tearing the inside out to burn until it finally burned down. My dad had stayed there in 1958 shortly after it was abandoned. there was still a note on the table asking people to take care of the place and clean up. Every single thing left in the barn and house was gone by 1970. American treasure hunters had even gone along to the disintegrating homesteads all along the trail towards Holberg digging for everything they could find. Bottles, brass tack buckles, farm implements, everything.
There was a hidden cabin at the sand neck , the only remaining Air force structure from WWII. Found a Lee Enfield 303 in there under the bed.
Slept there several times.
There was a current Air force "survival" training cabin on Hansen Lagoon at the Fisherman River and a squatter's cabin on the other side of the river tucked into the trees.
And up the river along a hidden path either from the first crossing of the Fisherman river or from the shore were two log cabins belonging to people who had bought land there and been expropriated by the park.
Stayed there too.
There was a suspension bridge out to the actual cape from the lighthouse.
Haven't seen my photos for years. Didn't have a camera in Easter 1970.
