IN PICTURES: Mount Marshall - Piper Cherokee 140, N6483R, accident occurred August 09, 1969

Mount Marshall Plane Wreck - 5/31/14

"I did a long hike today, but the highlights were bushwhacking from Cold Brook Pass to Sheperds Tooth (on the side of Iroquois Peak) and finding the Mount Marshall plane wreck just off the Cold Brook Trail! The plane crashed in August of 1969 and is still intact. One wing broke off, and is lying nearby."

Some of you like hiking to see artifacts in the woods and this is a neat one!
