....does anyone hear?
This is one of thousands of trees that fell to Tropical Storm Arthur this past July here in New Brunswick.
We're back on the beaver pond trail with a few more pictures continued from my previous post.
You can see the trees that blew over in a large swath in this section. It was incredible to see!
Trees were either snapped off or were uprooted from the shallow soil. Sometimes it was a domino effect where one tree would take out a lot more. There is a lot of clean up to do.
This is the new footbridge across the pond. It was installed earlier this summer and is on pontoon floats. It's a bit wonky in one spot tipping toward the water but not too bad to cross on foot. We came from the other side in this photo. This trail is supposed to be wheelchair accessible but I think more work will have to be done on it after the storm and the bridge will have to be adjusted too to make it passable for a wheelchair.
I think this is my favourite photo of that day. I love the colours in it and the patch of blue sky that reflected in the water. The sun never did shine though.
I may have shared a photo of this tree one other time but it's till hanging on to the rock while others are leaning terribly or have fallen over.
So cool. Like a big claw.
Last picture. (thanks for hanging in there with me) Have a seat! Someone cut this tree that had fallen across the path into chunks and lined them up. As I said, there is still a lot of clean up to do. We had a nice walk but I was happy to get into the car with the heat on as I was so cold. Fall is here.
Yes, I got my pickles made today. The house smells so good! It's not a big batch but enough to do us the next year. We don't eat them with every meal after all.
Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments. And welcome to my new followers too! It's so nice to have you along. Have a great day!
