This property is adjacent to my Happy Place and I roll thru it to get there by bike. One of the main attractions of that park is the sand dunes. Lots and very big.
So this entire area is very sandy. And when its windy tree fall. Big trees.
Both pics today are from trees that fell in the last few years. The sandy soil just gives them less to hold on to. These woods are full of theses downfalls. There everywhere and quite often fall across the trail, either having some good Samaritan come remove it or we just re route around it.
That said, it is private land and the owner who will go unnamed here has decided to make a “camping resort” of sorts here. With hard side permanent tent thingies. If that happens it will be a matter of time before one falls on someones car. Or worse.
And then, at that point we will lose this area. That will be a sad day. But again, it is private land and I guess we can be happy for all the years we had with it. But still sad as it changes my now favorite route (cross bike).
I’ll try and get in these woods as much as I can before its gone. A couple weeks ago I saw a Pileated Woodpecker here. Thats only twice now for me. Rides like today had me looking hard. But nothing. I’ll be back Saturday.
