Hiking in the Woods

So Nathan recently inherited some land, and yesterday, we decided to scout it out.

Tree Wall

Along one of the property lines, there is an awesome tree wall.

Pines

While wandering we came upon this incredibly gnarly, twisty pine.

It seems that there is some disease out there eating pine trees. It seemed to affect between 5% and 20% of the trees. If you look closely, you can see little white flecks on one. Those are termites eating it (that tree seemed to already be dead, so we don’t think the termites are to blame, though we don’t know.)

Circle of Life

We saw the circle of life in progress in the form of some bones and a dead fox.
