Downed Trees Blocking the Trail

Downed Trees Blocking the Trail
Originally uploaded by odelapaz.
I'd been complaining about the fallen trees on our property. The sheer magnitude of the loss is hard to capture in a two-dimensional photograph. We had a logger come by to give us some idea of what it'd cost us to clean up the mess. We're talking about some valuable trees, both aesthetically and commerically.

Anyway, here are two downed cedars. I had to chop them up to free up the trail head. You can't see it, but to the right of these trees are two or three other fallen pines. This roughly a half-acre plot, so the loss of a few trees in an already thinning plot is quite noticeable.
