The old road follows a fold in the grassy hillside, winding past small clumps of aspens and Limber pines to the watershed ridge. Descend alongside the boundary fence into Marston Creek named after Ed Marston who homesteaded on the creek in 1902. He was a colourful character, remembered chiefly for his set of false teeth made from cowhide! His wife was equally famous for her homemade wine into which she put everything including leftover dessert. "Bloody awful", said Raymond Patterson who always drank it, rather interested to find out what kind of effect it was going to have on him this time.
