Get 'em young eh?
After a whole summer of dubious craptastic weather (three 100 year storms blew through) we finally got a full weekend of gorgeous. J and I did some hiking up to the top of this rock. This is the perspective from the top.
We collected leaves and stuffed pumpkins. Watching kids disembowel pumpkins makes me give thanks....the ability to revel in the grossness brings joy to my dry withered soul.
And of course the gods they love to topple the trees. This bastard beat us....not before we'd used winching, pullies, chainsaws and a broom to poke it - my dad had to accept the Tree Services option.
In his words..."I've never met a tree I haven't felled" She was a worthy adversary.
