Hiking the Blue Ridge Parkway

Went during a dry spell so the waterfall was a trickle. The wading pool at the bottom was almost empty. Cascaded the falls and climbed to the upper pool. Waste high and very cold, but definately needed cooling off. Only ones there so it was nice. Ate lunch overlooking Sherando lake at the place where all the rocks are at the side of mountain. I know I'm very technical. Went on to find the furnace. Sign was knocked down; should have gone to left, but went to right. Ended up being a very long walk back. Never did make it to the furnace; saw sign knocked down on the way back. Anyone been to the furnace? Just curious on what it is. Trish
