Just wanted to let the group know of my expedition to Harliss, MN. It's a ghost town, located North of Red Wing. We drove there Sat. and spent the day exploring. We found 3 old bridges, dating from 1915 to 1920, and some older footings. The growth and woods are too thick to explore(detect), and we are going back in the fall with less foliage. I took lot's of  pictures, which I'll post later, didn't find much, a a partial metal toy car, some bullet shell casings and the usual pulltabs. There are foundations there, but the woods are too thick too see right now. It was fun, got bit by mosquitos and loads of woodticks. Talked to a guy that owns property on the river, and he says the bridge is the original start of hwy 3/61. Looked it up on the net, and he is correct. (

) The bridge is numbered by the Minnesota Highway Dept. I'll post pictures soon.
My exploration team consists of myself, my son and my 13yo grandson. We had a ball, our imaginations were too active, but maybe in the Fall, the site will be better. Too thick too see much or even swing our detectors!

Anyone else checked this area out?

Capnrich,

Never been there but sounds like a great spot. I'd love to join you when I finally buy a detector, sometime soon I hope. I spend a fair amount of time in the woods south of the Twin Cities hunting and camping so I know what you mean by it being thick. The buck thorn infestation makes the woods so dense its ridiculous. However, I can't imagine it would make it impossible to hunt. Once deer hunting seasons over (most of the undergrowth and leaves on the bushes are gone by than) and if the ground isn't frozen yet, I'd be getting to know that place pretty well If I were you! Good luck!

Thanks for the replies! I'll post them soon as I have to downsize them first.
Here is a shot of the approximate location. This research is really getting to me...it's on my mind almost constantly! Cheesy
