My wife and I decided to take a hike last weekend. We headed up to one of our local nature centers and just wandered around the trails for a couple of hours. I decided to take a few pictures of the things I look for while walking through the woods. Hope you enjoy.
The White or Paper Birch is abundant around here. Which is a good thing as it is a very useful tree. It's bark is one of the best natural fire starters, can be made into containers and of course, be used as paper. It's sap is used much like Maple for Birch syrup and it's wood makes excellent campfire wood. This is one of a stand of 20 or 30 Birch in the same area.
Thanks for Reading, I hope you enjoy your time in the woods!
