Scenes from a forest

On a Walkabout

New growth - Maples

The trail into our forties:

Norway pine plantation

Pond behind the beaver dam


The "40" Camp - Once a logginge camp, it is still used for hunting

White Pine just outside of our property

Some of the corner markers:



Flora:
Violet -As identified by The Reader in comments

Canadian Violet - As identified by Ken

Fern growth exploding

Saw many of these as-yet-unidentifed young ferns with almost black leaves


Raspberries taking over in opened areas

Yellow birch growing out of old giant stump

Big fungus

Guided Forestry Tour:

Among the maples

Poplar growth in '94 clear cut area of the southern section.


Ken riding the trails

Old logging equipment scuff damage

Finding corners.

This yet-to-be-identified bird was really unhappy about us being in the particular location we were standing and talking. She flew very close to us - landing on a branch as close as one foot of MK to yell at him -
Mad Bird 1

Mad Bird 2

Mad Bird 3

One of many very large old stumps near the beaver dam

Interesting lichen growing on the stump
