Billy, way to go!!! Those are some awesome roots for sure. I hope to find roots like those someday. Glad to see roots like this still exist and I am glad you are one of the people finding them.
I used to find big roots back in the late 70's and they were old old roots. I remember them being big but cannot remember their age or etc, I was new at it and I remember them being huge but didn't know then what I know now. I am not sure if they keep growing in size in my mind the older I get or if they were really as big as I remember them to be. I hit the jackpot spot early on in my ginseng fever addiction and have not found a spot like it since.
Thanks guys I enjoy reading the comments and I tell you what just having the camera for the dig of that great old awesome root was beyond words for me. I am very thankful.
I dug a couple great roots on my 3rd trip out I will share that photo, But today I want to show you some great tops that I have saw in the past three trips as I know many of my friends here love to see them big old KY tops.
This 1st Pic is the 3 four fork tops from the big root.
