Weekly Photo Challenge – (Extra)ordinary

well

Bricks by themselves are pretty ordinary, but when you stumble upon an old well on your property made from bricks, they become much more interesting.

I had no idea this old well was on our property.  As I was hiking the other day I noticed this hole in the ground near a tree.  Upon first glance it did not appear deeper than 6 feet.  After further examination we realized it was full of leaves and the well continued down.  We  are still unsure of its depth.  As we walked away I could not help but wonder about this well’s story.

How old is it?  Who used it?  How long did it take them to make it?

Sometimes when you go for a hike you never know what you may find.
