During our walk today we went through an area that was obviously cut over 20 or 30 years ago. It is mostly covered with hardwood trees, and to our surprise there are some really large trees left. Most of them are large beech trees. The following is one between the "abandoned road" and the golf course.
But as I said we soon stepped off the "abandoned road"into the nature preserve, to just enjoy the trip, and nobody cared about the destination. The dogs just love smelling everywhere and Jake, our pseudo lab loves deep pellets, which we now have coined doggy probiotics. We just walked keeping the sun in mind, and figuring that if we kept the sun at a certain angle we would eventually make it to a trail that leads directly to our home. We did not care if it was straight or what we would be running into. Naturally it was one of the biggest beeches out back (I know of one or two more out there) that made us deviate from the course we had plotted in our mind, but that's the fun of it.
