Forests & Trees




It's a rough environment for trees, cold long winters and a constantly shifting, terribly rocky terrain -you can't dig a hole in this ground here. Your shovel hits a large rock, you remove the rock, then hit another rock. I tried a little gardening a while back, and it was a royal pain. When you take away the rocks, there's nothing left - very little soil to speak of for gardening purposes.

But they survive and enough thrive that there's a fair amount of timber here for the taking, as witnessed in the picture of cut logs in the previous post. The road you see in this middle frame is a lumber road.

  1. I loved the structures on your post of saturday and feel the cold in the forest pictures from this posting .On seeing them you don't think there is so much rock under it.
