|This old tree stump looks like a dragon head. It's hard to see, but it even has a snaggle tooth.|
|Heading uphill. Again. Hills make us stronger, right?|
|Can't wait until the leaves come out and this turns into a tunnel.|
|Almost got passed by this guy. It was tough, but I managed to hold him off.|
|Hard to see, but the area just beyond the trees has been logged off :-(|
Yeah, I know people can sell their timber if they want to and I'm OK with that. Logging has been and continues to be a valuable part of the local economy. It was just such a stark contrast from a week ago to go from forest to clear land. Once the jack pines take hold in the cleared land it will become good habitat for Kirtland Warblers. I'm sorry to see the trees go, but I'm also excited to see the forest renew itself.
