    Hi. Stumbled upon this article while researching turtle stones. I lived in Conesus for 23 years and was on the committee for the Turtlestone Festival, back in the day. Had the opportunity to go hunting for the stones many times. The one in your photo of the park was donated by me, abt. 25 yrs ago. I found it along with a few friends, in Geneseo. It weighs so much that it took 3 people to carry it up from the creek (a ravine was involved!) and about a mile back to our vehicles. We used a flannel shirt for a sling to carry it in. The shirt survived, if I recall correctly.

    Nice article, glad you enjoyed the park.

    Hi, Chris. Yes, glad I found it. I miss Conesus, so its great to read about people exploring the way I use to do. The stone seems to be holding up to the elements well.
    Do you have a Facebook page for the blog?
    Has anyone written about the Ambuscade in Groveland? Very cool place.

      Hey Gloria–there is indeed a Facebook page for Exploring Upstate! You can find it here.

      There are folks who have written about the Ambuscade quite a lot. A while back, I mentioned it briefly while telling the story of the related Torture Tree a few years back.
