It was an amazing day on the trail. Even though it was very windy and the temp was about 40 there were a lot of walkers and bikers. I learned something today. First...
Eagles were every where. I was told by a fellow trail walker that she witnessed two eagles dancing. Their talons were hooked together and they were performing acrobats in the sky.
I wished I would have witnessed that.
It was not only windy but the skies were quite ominous.
I met the man who planted the trees below. His name is Mark. He planted them in 1983. I had to tell him thank you for, to me, this spot is a sanctuary. This beautiful passage protects you from the wind on very cold windy days and from the sun on very hot days. He told me that he planted several of them but only these survived. I also learned that they are not technically Tamaracks, they are European Larch. He also planted the Norway and White pines.
This is how the European Larch looks in November. Now the needles cushion my every step. This will always be one of my favorite places to be.
