Forest Mystery

My hike the other day I was following an animal trail through the forest.  Eventually I lost track of the trail.  I must have missed where they turned at some point.  At any rate there is was with only my compass to go by in finding my way out.  After a mile or so I came across this.  It was solid underneath with a couple of wing nuts holding what must have been a removable bottom in place.  There was open space between the louvers.  No wires or electronics.  In fact it looked as if no one had been around in the area for a very long time as no trail, path or tracks were leading to it.

Nearby a couple small trees had these tags.

 And the entire area was staked off with three of these forming a triangle shaped plot.
The white thingy is in the background just to the left of the tree.

I have found the strangest things just by accident wandering aimlessly through the forests of Annadel.
I am still looking for my first Bobcat and Mountain Lion.

Looks like an abandoned weather station to me. The numbers I haven't a clue. Yes he who travels find the most amazing things. Keep traveling.

That is mysterious indeed, can't think what this is about. Those ribbons with the numbers look rather new. The white machine, I first thought, it was an abandoned washing machine!

I always wonder what they are when I run across stuff like this.

I fear we are being watched by aliens. :))

If you are looking for a bobcat or mountain lion, I hope you have something with you to protect yourself.
