Nothing much to report this week. I went on my usual Saturday morning hike, and did come home with 3 sticks: Black Cherry, Red Maple, and Northern Red Oak. I really don’t need any more “common” species; I’m running out of room for drying my sticks. I’m still hoping to stumble across some Sassafrass or Persimmon that has fallen.
For some reason, the park management decided to “strip log” along the road that cuts through the middle of the park. They just cut down tree after tree along the road, pushing many of them into the woods. It really looks a lot worse when you’re walking along the road as opposed to driving:
I really don’t know why they did that.
I came across this little guy while in the woods. You can see how much rain we got this week:
My stick collecting is beginning to bear fruit. I’ll have a few photos in the next couple of days.
