We have many trails throughout our forest that make our almost daily walks very pleasant. However, at times I find trails limiting as we are always viewing the scenery from the same perspective. Instead I sometimes step off the trail and will find hidden treasures by looking at “the dark side of the moon”.
I keep photographing this old stump. I admire it’s character and resilience. It is an old cedar cut down around the late 1890’s. The remaining stump is about seven feet high (2.2 meters) and you can still see the notches where the loggers placed their springboards. They would stand on them to cut the tree down.
