Curious Door

If it were able to talk, what tales could this old door tell?  Located along the Illinois River in Pere Marquette State Park, IL, this door offers so many details of interest — the surrounding rough stone walls; the long, rusty strap hinges and one empty hinge pin; the barely visible sagging frame; what appear to be holes, some looking random, some ordered; the rotting boards; the dark asking us to explore what is beyond.  Has it been flooded? How deep and how often?  So many questions and so few answers.
