SOLO Took a Trip to the Lighthouse Community

We traveled back in time through the labrynth-like forest of the Lighthouse community. After a spooky investigation of the ancient cemetery, we traveled to the decimated ruins of a house; only the rocky cellar remained. We came across the grindstone where wives and daughters would work to provide ground seeds and berries for food. After exploring these historical remains, we trekked up a treacherous and dangerously steep trail to a breathtaking view of the snow-capped forest. This completed our adventure, luckily surviving the slippery descent.
