Page 20 Where is This? I'm changing thing up a little again this week. ms picture doesn't show the usual scenic locale. It's something most of you have seen but may not have noticed. It was featured in a History Comer no long ago. The prize this week is ),our choice of herbal lip balm or Arnica flower liniment from D&L Herbs of Council. Get  your answers in by 4:00 on Monday to 243-6961 or record@ctcweb.net_ The name of the pond in last week's photo had two correct answers: "The Devil's Inkwell," which was the name for several generations, or "Rush Lake." I have no idea why the powers that be (Forest Serviced changed the narne. Bill Daniels says he has two pictures of the place - one with a sign that reads, "De00's 00ell" and the other reads, "Inkwell Lake." So evidently there was the latter of those names in between for a while. The Inkwell is located near the top of Cuddy Mountain, pretty near the top of a ridge. Where the water comes from is a mystery, rye heard a story that someone once poured dye into the Inkwell and the color came out someplace down the mountainside or some such place. All my life I've heard that the bottom of the Devil's Inkwell has never been found because it's so deep. There are several stories on that subject. The latest comes from Dave Addington who contributed the photo. Dave took a fish finder with a depth indicator up there and it said the water varied from 11 feet, down to 19 feet at the deepest point. There are two other stories that have been around a long time. Bill Daniels said Dick Harrington told him that Dick's uncles tied two 40-foot ropes together with a rock on the end, went out on the inkwell in a military life raft, lowered the rock Wednesday, October 10, 2012 down into the water on the end of the ropes, and it never hit bottom. q-he other story comes from John Camp, who heard it from Earl Lindberg (spelling?) who rode for cattle associations on Cuddy Mountain for many years. Earl said he took part in a similar rock and rope depth test with two 60-foot ropes tied together He said the rock hit bottom right as the rope ran out - in other words about 60 feet down. I think someone should do a fool-proof scientific test of the depth of that water. Or maybe it would The Adams County Record ruin a legend that has been around for years. Anybody who has heard other stories of depth trials, there or anything else about the Devil's Inkwell, I'd like to hear them. The number of responses for this picture broke our record, with 18 people sending in the correct answer. We put the names in a gallon can and pulled out the name John Ford of Council.
