Erected by filial affection
To the memory of
Our dear father
Who accidentally lost
His life on this spot
3 September 1845
The monument was brought to the site in the winter by sled.
It is located beside Calamity Brook, south of Flowed Lands in the Adirondack Mountains.
My husband has hiked the 46 high peaks of the Adirondack Mountains, NY.
This photo is from one of his recent hikes.
