Took a walk this morning on the paved trail behind our house. Looks like the water took out part of it. Amazed how fast the town checks on things for us.
This was a stunning thing to see too. once these two trees stood side by side. One old and one new(er). We’ll never know which of them caused both to come crashing down.
I can’t imagine what this place had to have been like last night. Look at how much dirt and mud was left behind across the path here. And the dirt is pretty well packed too. I may be light on my feet but I weight much more than a feather and didn’t sink at all when I walked over the this mess.
Forecast is calling for even more rain over the next few days. I wonder how much more the trail will change when all is said and done.

I was out for a walk along one of the many nice wooded trails nearby noting how many trees had fallen since last time which was two summers ago. Then I came across this poor tree. Now, I wouldn’t exactly define myself as a tree-hugger but this is something I’ll never understand. I mean, it’s not even some adolescent declaration of affection.
I wonder if there’s any way to remove it without doing damage to the tree.
